Subject: RE: BS: Huntley Guilty
John9 I always find it strange how serious threads seem to help you to spell and type :-)

I do feel sorry for Maxine Carr over one facet of the case. She was obviously very attached to both of the girls. It must be extremely painful for her to know that her friendship with them was probably the reason that they went round to the house in the first place and allowed Huntley to get them inside. It also seems likely that the fact that she had gone to Grimsby on her own for the weekend was responsible for Huntley's state of mind that evening. Maxine Carr cannot be blamed for any of these things, but they will be a very heavy cross for her to bear for the rest of her life.

I don't think that she is the sort of person who will be able to shrug things off easily, unlike Huntley. It is definitely very unfair indeed to compare her in any way with the late Myra Hindley as I have heard people do.
