WHO MURDERED

NURSE FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE SHORE?

     

 

 

 

    Someone struck Florence Nightingale Shore with three heavy blows to the  head aboard the London to Hastings train in 1920. 
 
No one was ever arrested for the murder of the decorated 
army nurse and god daughter of 
Florence Nightingale, who just returned from five years in France. 
 
There was never one to point a finger at for the crime, until now.
 
The murderess was someone who knew her best.

 

 
 

 

 

      BUT the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.            George Eliot - Conclusion of Middlemarch
