Yes Batty, but he was clearly not right in the head, and the fact that he confessed to over 100 crimes kind of made it all look a bit suspiscious, don't you think? If the police had any sense, they wouldn't have stopped looking. And I don't think in this case the thought of a long sentence would have stopped him, since he still claimed to have committed the crime whilst in prison. It's only now that it's obvious it can't have been him.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!
