At this time, detectives were lucky a little more - managed to find witnesses who saw how Jemima left the club with a kind of tall, slender red-haired young man.
31 October 1969 29-year-old Helen pattoki was killed (Helen Puttock); before her death, she - along with her sister Jean (Jean) - entertained the same club from which went toward McDonald`s death.

Jean pattoki was the most useful of all available witnesses; Soon the detectives have been fairly accurate description of the potential killer. `Dzhon` was quite well dressed and handsome young man - tall, slender, with hair reddish hue; he behaved very correctly. Pattoki remembered that John called, and his name - either `Templton` (Templeton), whether` Semplson` (Sempleson). The main omen, however, turned out to be a kind of speech feature John - he often quoted the Bible; so that during a conversation with the sisters, he referred to Moses, to prove that dance clubs are by nature jacks blemish.

Opportunities to commit the murder of Peter were - at that time he had just lived in Glasgow; In addition, Tobin was an ardent Catholic. Alas, the DNA comparison again to no avail; however, by the time the sperm samples of the Bible John has nowhere were not good due to improper storage.
Finally, the hunt for Bible John had to stop in September of 2010, after the death of Jean-pattoki McLachlan - the only one who saw the killer and managed to survive after that.
