Fedeltà #371

by

With such national newspaper coverage, Jacqui came to the attention of the Irish paramilitaries. Though initially a gift from heaven as it reminded people of the presence of the unit and the continuation of its armed struggle, the media coverage quickly started to ridicule the group. Without her realising it, Jacqui’s gauche quest for celebrity status and efforts to maximise her fees made her very vulnerable.

A dog walker discovered her body one morning in Epping Forest. Fortunately she was face down, as when the police turned her over, her nose had been cut off and stuffed in her mouth.

    Bad luck, Jacqui. (This drabble reminded me of one of my favorite lyrics Paul McCartney ever wrote, in a Wings song called 'Famous Groupies.' "There was a lead guitarist, who lived in Epping Forest.")

    I don’t know that song; I’ll check it out. Epping Forest is a long finger of ancient woodland near where Tony lived... and Terry too.
