A close friend of the Ralph Family, David McGreavy moved in as their lodger in 1972 and would often play with the three Ralph children, helping to babysit whilst their parents were working. On the evening of Friday 13 April 1973, Clive and Elsie Ralph returned home to find the police already there, and were told their three small children were dead. McGreavy was later picked up by police walking the streets in a drunken state. Although they were in his care, he initially denied all responsibility, but later confessed in detail about what had happened to the Ralph children. His story would shock even the most hardened police detectives who considered it one of the most brutal and senseless of crimes.
