Well, at least one suspicion about Saville has been given a significant boost in credence:QuoteOne witness was cited in the report as saying he “wore huge rings that he said were made from the glass eyes of dead bodies” held in the mortuary there.
The investigation heard the entertainer claimed to have "interfered with the bodies of deceased patients".
Dr Sue Proctor, who led the investigation into his abuse at LGI, said a student nurse recalled a conversation with Savile in which he claimed he performed sex acts on the dead.
Certainly plausible, probably more likely than not, but I can't help but remain a touch skeptical. With the UK press being what it is, he'll have taken ambulances full of corpses for joyrides playing Iron Maiden to battersea dogs home, while beating a pensioner with a rake and singing Cliff Richard's greatest hits by next week. I can't help but think that anyone not caught by now has a serious interest in throwing as much bad signal around about Savile as possible. Discredit one sensational claim and you put a shadow of doubt over future, as well as historical allegations/crimes.
I suppose I may just have a distaste for agreeing at any point with Icke.
Edit to better reflect what the UK press would/will actually do.
Okay, full disclosure. It's not that I want to take any allegations against him lightly, I don't know, either way. As a trope, wearing the glass eyes of deceased as rings, well, that caught my attention. I am a bad person
