"BOI nabs Briton for cyber pornography"
Source: Negros Chronicle website
Note: Christopher Coverdale was the individual who claimed to have seen a man pulling Lesley Molseed up the hill into the moor on the day she was murdered (October 5, 1975.) Of interest here because Raymond Hewlett was the prime suspect in the Molseed case - many questions continue to exist regarding the Molseed murder and many people believe that Ronald Castree was wrongfully convicted of the Molseed murder.
It is not known if the man discussed on this site is the same Christopher Coverdale. It is also not known whether Christopher Coverdale was investigated as a suspect in the Molseed murder - having been the last person to have seen her alive.
The allegations (on the forum linked above) indicate Christopher Coverdale may have stolen 1,000,000 pounds sterling invested in Seamless Floors Ltd. The victim has allegedly been trying to track Christopher Coverdale down and stated that there were outstanding warrants in the UK for Christopher Coverdale's arrest.
(UPDATE: Please scroll to comments at the bottom of this post. Coverdale allegedly facing rape/buggery charges.)
Summary of the discussion follows:
British citizen Richard Holden, was arrested after someone "T. Johnson" accused him of luring young women to his home and photographing them. Forum members claim that "T. Johnson" is actually Christopher Coverdale and that he set Holden up in an attempt to have Holden deported. Holden was eventually released.
'oldboy' ("firstname.lastname@example.org") posted the following about Christopher Coverdale:
- Christopher Coverdale was born Sept 21, 1948.
- In 2002, working in Todmorden (Christopher Coverdale's home town) "old boy" allegedly had a "painful experience" with Coverdale.
- Christopher Coverdale owned "Seamless Floors, Ltd., Bank House, 71 Dale St., Milnrow, Rochdale, Lnca.
- Christopher Coverdale disappeared with more than 1,000,000 pounds sterling which he ("old boy") had invested in Christopher Coverdale's company Seamless Floors Ltd.
- Christopher Coverdale inherited the company "after he forced his founding father from the committee by setting his own father and brother up with tax evasion."
- Christopher Coverdale left England for New Zealand in 2003.
- Coverdale now lives in Tubod, Bacong
- A warrant issued in 2008 exists for Christopher Coverdale's arrest.
- Christopher Coverdale is wanted for the rape and murder of a 17 year old girl in 1977 and that her name was Lesley Molseed from Todmorden and that Christopher Coverdale is the only suspect.
(Blogger note: this information is not correct. Lesley Molseed was 11 years old at the time of her murder. It IS true, however, that Christopher Coverdale is thought to be the last person who saw her alive as he stated that he witnessed a man pulling the child up the hill at the lay-by where Lesley's body was found. I have found no information to date indicating that the West Yorkshire police investigated Christopher Coverdale - which seems strange as it is standard procedure that the last person seeing a murder victim alive is automatically considered a suspect until ruled out. It is also true that a man (Ronald Castree) is serving a life sentence for what many people believe to be a wrongful conviction in the Molseed case.)

I was supposed to have written from an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) a screed on 31st December 2009 in which I assassinated the character of the following: Terry and Jean White, Chris and Cheryl (this is how I would spell her name) Coverdale, Stuart, and Chuck. I do not know the surnames of the last two and from some of the daft things I have read on this site, I refuse to believe what has been stated in my name. I want to emphatically deny writing, thinking, and saying anything bad about the aforementioned people. On the contrary, these are good people of whom I consider it a privilege to call my friends. In future, for the sake of the integrity of the Negros Chronicle and to reduce embarrassment for innocent individuals is there any way that stories can be checked out first for validity, or will there remain a free for all for anyone who wants to dishonestly have a go at someone else.
