Brian Field escaped justice for 33 years after killing Roy Tuttill in 1968. He was a violent predator of young boys and had reason to move around the UK as a repairman of farm equipment.I find it difficult to believe he stopped killing after 1968. After the murder Field moved to the midlands. A suspicious death and the disappearance of 2 boys should have been further investigated. Mark Billington lived near Field and was found hanging from a tree in nearby Meriden. There is speculation Field staged a murder to look like suicide. David Spencer & Patrick Warren, 2 boys from nearby Chelmsley Wood vanished. Field was convicted of offences in Shropshire, Wales & Aberdeen.The photo fit of a man with Martin Allen looks very much like the young Brian Field. These are the most likely he was involved in. I find it difficult to believe Field stopped killing after one murder, especially believing he had got away with it. In later years Field worked as a gardener & had plenty acces to dump sites and areas to hide a body.

At least 17 other cases of child murder or disappearance were reinvestigated and police could not eliminate Field from involvement in 8 of these but despite huge efforts to secure convictions it is unlikely that any further charges can be proved unless of course further bodies are found yielding clues.
