This story takes place during August 1969. Alec Keen who described himself as a self employed chartered yacht owner was desperate for money and claiming that he found it impossible to have a relationship with anybody over the age of 27.
Keen told police his wife was missing from the yacht they were staying on while he had taken a dinghy to go to the local pub, The ship Inn at West Itchenor.
This is one of two episodes that took place in this area during the summer of 1969. The next podcast is about events that happened just a few miles away and were connected to the death of Brian Jones guitarist Brian Jones.
