New article title needed[edit]

This article needs a new title. Torso in the Thames is unspecific (there have been many others). I believe it should be identified either by including a year or specifically with the 'Adam' name to set it apart. DreamGuy 14:15, August 23, 2005 (UTC)

I agree. BrainyBabe 09:46, 29 May 2006 (UTC)
Done. Andrew Parodi 07:42, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Nonsensical sentence[edit]

Can anyone explain this? I have removed it until someone does. "Although she later denied this, she was DNA tested but found not to be Adam's murderer." Did someone intend to write that this woman is not Adam's mother? BrainyBabe 09:46, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

Non-English sources[edit]

Medicine murder ruled out?[edit]

It was initially suspected that the murder was a muti or medicine murder […] the police ruled out this theory. There seems to be a lot of forensic evidence for a ritual background (see the German article). When did the police rule out this theory altogether? This would contradict other parts of the article: is believed to be linked to a ritual killing, deterrent for further ritual crimes --87.162.56.14 15:02, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Body identified[edit]

The body was identified today according to The Sun, a British tabloid. Would this constitute a reliable source?

I don't think so,wait for a more reliable source using DNA testing rather than just guesses.Ryan Vesey (talk) 18:52, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
