Body Of Queen Obsessive Lay Outside Buckingham Palace For 3 Years

Quote:
The body of a loner who was obsessed with the Queen lay undiscovered on a park island within sight of Buckingham Palace for three years.
The skeletal remains of Robert James Moore, a 69-year-old American, were found on the small West Island in London's St James's Park.
Moore had sent hundreds of 'strange and offensive' packages, including obscene photographs, to the Queen over 15 years, Westminster Crown Court was told.

The skeletal remains of Royal Family obsessive Robert James Moore, a 69-year-old American, were found on the small West Island (circled) in St James's Park in March. The fenced off location offers an 'excellent' view of Buckingham Palace:


These included letters that sometimes ran to 600 pages and boxes which were falsely said to contain dangerous substances.
The inquest heard that Mr Moore suffered from mental health problems and had arrived in Britain from his home in the U.S. in 2007.
So far no next-of-kin have been found in the United States and exactly where he came from is yet to be determined.
West Island, which is not open to the public and can only be accessed by boat or by wading across the shallow lake, offers an 'excellent' view of Buckingham Palace.

Detective Sergeant Mike West, from Marylebone Police Station, told last week's hearing: 'He had a fixation with the Queen and the Royal Family, which takes us back to the place where he was discovered.
'There would not be a better place to remain undiscovered within view of the Queen’s primary residence than the West Island.'
A skull and bones belonging to Mr Moore were discovered on a rotting yellow cushion in thick undergrowth on March 15 by a tree surgeon working for the Royal Parks, newspaper West End Extra reported.
Nearby lay vodka bottles, and several forms of identification, including a 'degraded' U.S. passport, were found in his clothes.

The passport photograph matched one that had been sent to Buckingham Palace by Mr Moore.
One vodka bottle was attached to Mr Moore's clothing by a piece of string, suggesting he had been sleeping rough on the streets of London.
DS West said: 'There was a green bottle attached to a belt attached to a safety pin attached to string.
'Street drinkers will do this so that if someone tries to remove the alcohol from them while they are asleep it will wake them up and they can fend off the person.'
The amount of mulch covering the cushion would have taken 'between two and three years to accumulate', the inquest was told.
A pathologist estimated that Mr Moore's remains had been on the island for around three years.
He had no next-of-kin and was not on any missing persons list, but the U.S. embassy in London had a record of him having taken a taxi to its Mayfair premises in 2007 to request money to pay for a fine, the court heard.
The embassy put him in contact with a man in the U.S. called Mr Fiorentino, who Mr Moore said would send him the money he required.
A post-mortem examination found no evidence of trauma or injury, but no cause of death could be determined.
Coroner Fiona Wilcox said: 'If ever next of kin of this gentleman are discovered I would hope my sympathies will be passed on for their loss.'
The cause of death was ruled as 'unascertained'.

Re: Body Of Queen Obsessive Lay Outside Buckingham Palace For 3 Years
