Re: Meyer HASENFUS #general

Since Meyer HASENFUS may have been murdered wouldn't there be references to
him in the newspapers of the time, both the Jewish and the Johannesburg
papers?

Also, wouldn't there be police records of the murder investigation and
subsequent court proceedings if the murderer were found? Police records
would usually have quite a bit of information regarding the deceased and his
family and the circumstances of his death. The court records would also be
probably quite voluminous and informative.

I know that in the United States police records are kept for long periods of
time, although I once looked for some that were 75 years old and found that
the police had just thrown them out. Actually, I thought that perhaps they
really hadn't thrown them out, but did not want to go and look for them in
storage.
