A Message from Muriel Jakubait 17 July 2012

To readers of my blog

I was with Muriel Jakubait, Ruth Ellis’s sister, today. We had lunch and a chat. Muriel’s response to two topics:

1. The new book to be published in September 2012 claiming to be the ‘real’ Ruth Ellis story. Was she [the author] there? It’s an insult to our book. The truth is written in our book [RUTH ELLIS MY SISTER’S SECRET LIFE].

My sister is not here. I’ve suffered enough with all the lies and scandal that has been printed. All the talk about Ruth has damaged the family. We can’t forget her. She should never have been hanged…a beautiful girl.

¬†2. And as for the man who was on the radio¬† [BBC Radio 4, Saturday 14th July 2012] calling himself Ruth’s nephew. He’s not a proper nephew. How can he know anything about Ruth Ellis? Ruth’s only nephews were my sons. End of story.

  1. My aunt Betty (Beatrice) Sargeant was one of Ruth’s prison wardens. She spent a long time even the evening before talking to Ruth and getting to know her…Ruth asked that the prison wardens that looked after her be with her the evening before my aunt said. Having got to know and look after Ruth she said she was innocent, and should NEVER have been hung… up until she died last year she was totall against hanging. She said Ruth was done ‘the dirty on’ by her husband…there was always empathy for her.

  2. Why read or buy a book that states the Party line again about Ruth, if I wanted to do that I’d always go back to the one by Robert Hancock. The brilliant book by Monica and Muriel is a breath of fresh air from beginning to end, it certainly made me think and it is a privilege to have a signed copy by Monica and Muriel.

    What I can’t understand is why the mainstream media haven’t yet done a docu-drama out of the story behind this book. they could pose very serious and poignant questions for the viewer, and a few years ago it would have been on the list of things to do by the BBC, ITV, Ch4 and 5 bod’s, even SKY could attempt a doc for their millions and millions of viewers! The answer is probably because it is easier and less hassle to spew out the Party line about Ruth, than dare to rock the establishment boat and state something utterly and totally different to the masses.

    It seems to me that people are losing their investigative research skills in the C21st, the ‘Woodward’s and Bernstein’s’ of this new century will be less and less sadly, because those that have the desire to find the truth out are eventually cloned into good little journalists/researchers or are scared off. So thank-goodness for Monica and Muriel’s brave stance re this story, which needed to be told and now is.

  3. I have no doubt Ruth Ellis was innocent. I had the privilege of meeting Muriel Jacubait and Monica Weller at the Magdela pub back in 2005. To be able to ask questions of MurieI on a case I had been aware of since childhood (I remember Muriel being featured on the news campaigning for the truth), and was familiar with through work, was an unforgettable experience.

    • Thank you to Anonymous.

      Your comment has reminded me about the book signing at the Magdala and it has inspired me to look back through my files and journals to that event on 21 November 2005.

      I had previously written to the Curator of The Crime Museum at New Scotland Yard who showed Muriel and I the gun, on 1st November inviting him to attend the signing. His successor replied to my letter saying unfortunately the previous curator had retired in January that year, but said that a colleague would be coming along and would be purchasing a copy of the book to be kept in the Museum.

      I later wrote in my Journal that a ‘representative’ from the Crime Museum came along with a friend from the British Museum to the signing. I got the impression he, like me, was on a mission. He said he had tried shooting with a similar gun on the firing ranges and said it was impossible for him to fire it. He added it would have been impossible for Ruth Ellis to have handled that gun. He told me that the police have ‘got to come clean about what happened’ [in 1955] and also said that Muriel and I had done New Scotland Yard a favour by bringing out the book.
