Surprise had been expressed in a comment some time ago on this or another blog that there was no mention of a wallet or other identification on the body of Dr Kelly.
Looking at the latest batch of responses from Thames Valley Police I'm pleased to see that somebody has raised this very matter. The questioner had raised other points which won't be covered in this particular post.
These are the questions and answers relating to the wallet and ID:
Q Was a wallet found on or close to Dr Kelly's body at Harrowdown Hill on 18 July 2003?
Q Was any form of identification found on Dr Kelly's body at Harrowdown Hill?
Q Was Dr Kelly's wallet found at a location other than Harrowdown Hill? If so, at what location and on what date was it found?
A Dr Kelly's wallet was found by his family on the dining table of his house prior to them reporting him missing.
Probably many people would be surprised that Dr Kelly wasn't carrying any identification on him although I don't have too much of a problem with this.
The thing I found more interesting was the location of the wallet in the house. Leaving his wallet on the table seems odd to me in view of my perception of Dr Kelly being meticulous. The best possible explanation I can come up with at the moment is that he put it on the table preparatory to putting his Barbour jacket on. We know he took a phone call just before 3 o'clock. Did this distract him and he just forgot to put it in his pocket before he exited the front door?
Perhaps the unexpected appearance of Mrs Kelly who heard the phone ring and came downstairs to answer it also upset his normal thought processes.
The fact that the key fob, spectacles (no sign of their case), blister packs and mobile phone were jangling together in one pocket is also very surprising.
Dr Hunt made a lot of the fact that the spectacles weren't on Dr Kelly's face when he examined him and that, in his opinion, he removed them at the time he was allegedly cutting his wrist. Did Thames Valley police find an empty spectacles case in the Kelly home when they made their extensive search of the premises? True to form the question wasn't asked at the Inquiry.
