The so-called Blazing Car Murder has remained one of Northamptonshire’s most notorious murders since the charred remains of Alfred Rouse’s mystery victim were discovered inside a burnt-out Morris Minor baby saloon in Hardingstone in November 1930.
The family of the man long suspected of being the victim have now contacted the Chron to reveal they may finally be able to categorically identify who Rouse brutally murdered.
