Dead in the water: bringing down my brother's killer after his 38 years on the run

Farmer, Penny, author

This is a study of the brutal torture and murder of the author's brother and his fiancée 40 years ago. In July 1978, two bodies were found in the sea off the coast of Guatemala, and proved to be the remains of Chris Farmer and Peta Frampton, respectively a medical graduate and a law graduate, aged 25 and 24, from Greater Manchester. They had been beaten, tortured and killed, their bodies weighted down and dumped in the sea from the yacht on which they had been crewing. For nearly 40 years, no one was charged with these savage murders, even though the name of the yacht, the Justin B., and its owner, an American named Silas Boston, were known
