Location: 46 Lower Belgrave Street, London
Description: Here on Thursday, November 7, 1974, this six-story brick house in fasionable London, murder and mystery began. The 29-year-old nanny Sandra Rivett went downstairs to the basement kitchen to make some tea for her employer, Countess Veronica Lucan, wife of the Seventh Earl of Lucan. When she didnt return the slender Lady Lucan went to find her and was viciously attacked.
She stumbled out of the house and across to the Plumbers Arms where she burst in and said Murder, murder! I think my neck has been broken! Hes tried to kill me!
The nanny was found dead, and Lady Lucan was certain that the assailant was her husband, Lord Lucan.
Lord Lucan was never found.
