Lucky Lucan

Lucky Lucan

It's strange to think that this is none other than that elusive suspected murderer Lord Lucan taking part in a power boat race off the Isle of Wight. This film was taken a decade before Lucan disappeared in to thin air after his children's nanny Sandra Rivett was found bludgeoned to death in the basement of the Lucan family's home. Lucan's estranged wife was also attacked but survived and identified Lucan as the assailant.

His fate is still an enthralling mystery for the British public. His blood soaked car was found abandoned at Newhaven but what happened after this is anybody's guess. One of Lucan's friends, John Aspinall, claimed Lucan probably committed suicide by scuttling a boat in the English Channel. Lucan's son agrees with this theory. However, Lucan's brother is confident that the Lord escaped to Africa where he has been in hiding ever since. If he is still alive, Lucky Lucan would be 78 years old.
