The discovery of Sarah’s painting.

Précis from my book, Dogged Days

 

On 5th July 2000, 5 days after Sarah vanished, a picture crammed with occult suggestions, that the Sun newspaper said had been painted by Sarah, was published on page 3. I came across it in odd circumstances.

 

On that day I was on my way to visit friends in Norfolk and arrived in Norwich very early in the morning hoping to find a café open. I was a little early for that but the garage next door was open so I decided to buy a drink and something to read from there. The only newspaper on show was the Sun, which is not a paper that I would buy but under the circumstances. When I queried the shop assistant about it he told me that he didn’t know why but it was the only newspaper that had arrived that day. Back in the car, when I flicked through the pages, I could not believe what I was seeing; I felt a chill, one that has never left me to this day when I think about it. As soon as I could I made sure that the presence of this painting was known around the world.

I’m told the painting only appeared in that first edition of the Sun. I have been unable to verify if this is true. If anyone can help in confirming if this was the case, please let me know.
