I have been following the story online since it was first reported... fascinating...:lol:

The thing is...this couple are going to be pretty rich once they leave prison...you can see the book deals and film rights being written up as we speak....!!!

I feel sorry for John Darwins father though...he is an elderly man who didn't deserve to think his son was dead...and the 'aunt' .... hilarious...:)

As for the sons....:wink2: hmmmmm jury is out on that one....

What I don't understand though, is why he handed himself in after all this time?

apparantly...while they were in Panama they were arguing...John darwin said he was sick of being 'dead'....so he upped sticks back to the UK...

If I was Ann Darwin I would have chopped his b*ll*cks off for dropping me in the brown stuff!!!!!

My sources are not reliable by the way....:lol:

I have been following this story aswell, its all a bit odd. Apparently something had to happen, as a piccie of them was taken 1 year ago in Panama and used on a property website. Somebody from the UK who was either familar with them or the case of his death/dissapearance contacted somebody and it all started unfolding, so I guess that is why he handed himself in as 'I think Im a missing person'.
It is totally bizzare and if the kids did think that their dad was dead, that is just sick, and his dad, bless him!

Yes - its all very strange.

Was reading at the weekend that the sons have disowned them but I also read somewhere that one of the sons has been transferring thousands and thousands of pounds into his mothers bank account so they may be involved somewhere too.

I live in the same town as the son (Basingstoke) and I'm sure I heard somewhere that he handed himself in because he wanted to come back to the UK to see his sons.
Not sure I believe that but hey ho:rolleyes:

I think the whole thing is bloody hilarious! The kids know, it's obvious. They'll only go to prison for a few months anyway. Am writing the film script as we speak.:green:
