Mail Online caption: Ross Bullock, 38, took his own life because of ‘distress’ [J4MB: Why the inverted commas?] caused by a fake rape allegation. After a ‘year of torment’, [J4MB: Why the inverted commas?] Mr Bullock hanged himself in the garage of the family home, leaving a note revealing he had ‘hit rock bottom’ [J4MB: Why the inverted commas?] and that with his death ‘I’m free from this living hell’
Out thanks to Mike P for this. An extract:
Mr Bullock’s parents may now take civil action against West Mercia Police and are calling for the accuser – who was in a relationship with another man when she and Ross had sex – to be charged. [J4MB: In plain English, Ross Bullock was the woman’s partner in reserve.] Police confirmed they are investigating an allegation of perverting the course of justice.
Mr Bullock, a forklift truck driver from Redditch, Worcestershire, met his accuser in February 2015 and they had sex at his workplace. The pair shared dozens of flirtatious texts afterwards.
In one exchange, Mr Bullock said: ‘Well I hope u had a good time.’ The woman replied: ‘It was alright I suppose!! X.’
And so another good man lies dead on the altar of “Guilty on the claim of a woman, until proven innocent”.
