The Boston Strangler who murdered several women in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, in the 1960s was probably just indulging in a 'playful tiff' according to criminologists who have re-examined the case in light of the recent Charles Saatchi Nigella Lawson incident outside a Mayfair restaurant.
'The pictures of the murdered women are horrific but give a far more drastic and violent impression of what took place,' said pathologist Dr Giles Jones. 'The Boston Strangler was probably just mucking about.'
Nigella Lawson is believed to have left the family home.
'She's hopping mad,'said a neighbour. 'If Charles were here now, Nigella would probably wring his bloody neck.'
