Florian Baboi - Wanted in connection with David McArthur's murder


  1. My wife and I used to live in Kings Norton but moved to Bradford some years ago. This item caused us considerabele interest because she has a cousin David Mc Arthur who came form a farming family in Nairnshire Scotland. The given age of the murder victim is roughly the same as that of my wife so it is possible that all the time we were living in Brum, there was a relative close by.

    Any info gratefully received
