They were murdered after getting into an altercation with locals regarding their previous convictions,which David Gaut stupidly let slip himself whilst drunk.He was moved into sheltered housing in Long Row, Newtredegar, a few weeks ago and police were called in last week, before the murder, as locals had found out about his past and were getting all lynch mobbish about it all).
That's why the media are saying so little about the victim / circumstances and why locals aren't all up-in-as about the whole thing).
I won't say anything else about the circumstances or suspects or anything because I'm aware that there is an investigation going on etc.
A man also called David Gaut was jailed in 1985 for the murder of his lover's child in Caerphilly. At the time he was 21 years old and would be 54 years old this year.
Neighbours in New Tredegar told WalesOnline that dead man's middle name was Tracey - the same middle name as the man jailed 33-years ago for the murder of baby Chi Ming Shek - known as Marky.
Three men have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Mr Gauk, who neighbours said had only been living in the town for six weeks.
Neighbours told WalesOnline that the dead man told them that he had recently been released for prison where had served 33 years behind bars, although two neighbours said he claimed he had been jailed for shooting a man by accident.
The murder of Chi Ming Shek on February 28, 1985, was described by a judge at the time as "the worst crime in the land".
As it stands, I dont flag people as being dead unless they died in prison, for example, Reginald Kray who I think died shortly after being released:
However, if there are convictions for his murder I would flag him, if it is him, as released on such and such a date but with a footnote referring to the fact that he was shortly afterwards murdered. As is the case with John Witney:
