|Death: ||Jan. 16, 1967|
British murder victim. He was seventeen at the time of his death, lived with his father at 67 Steeds Road in Muswell Hill, North London, had a job in a warehouse, and was a homosexual. In January 1967, a farmworker from Tattingstone, about five miles South of Ipswich in Suffolk, found two suitcases in a field. They contained a naked torso and severed limbs. These were identified as being Bernard Oliver's remains. Joe Meek (q.v.) had known Oliver, and the circumstances of the latter's death are thought to have contributed to Meek's mental state during his last days, because he feared being accused of involvement in the murder. Oliver was buried on February 6th., three days after Meek's death and that of Mrs. Violet Shenton (q.v.). No charges were ever brought in connection with his murder. There is no marker on his grave, in St. Peter's Avenue, which is best reached from the cemetery entrance on Coppetts Road. On the right-hand (North East) side of St. Peter's Avenue, about one hundred yards along, is the grave of Thomas James Whittaker, M.B.E.; and, just opposite this, on the left side of the Avenue, is a grass path. Bernard Oliver was buried on the right-hand side (North West) of this path, four graves back.
