That's what comes of relying on the Daily Mail! (I don't usually dare go there...)l’d never heard of this nutter, but the alleged connection with the moon suggested some research.
Gore murdered his parents “on the morning of 9th September 1991”. According to Moon Phases UK, the moon was “waxing crescent”, i.e. looked like this:
Carmel Gamble - one of the other murders for which he’s a suspect - was murdered on 11.11.89, the night before a full moon.
The murder of Melanie Road, the other potential Gore victim, was cleared up by a DNA match, and Christopher Hampton is now serving 22 years for it. (The moon was “waxing gibbous” on 8.6.84, the night of the crime.)
