sometimes they come back...part two

The Darwin story continues get get more and more bizarre. Mrs Darwin, who apparently is now closeted in Florida with a number of national newspaper reporters, is now saying that her husband turned up, dishevelled and bearded, on her doorstep a year after he disappeared, and for the next three years proceeded to live there in secret.

Edit: Mr Darwin has now been charged with making an untrue statement to procure a passport, and obtaining a money transfer by deception in relation to life insurance. Two counts of fraud, basically. If they seem strange charges, it's because by law British police can keep suspects for only a short period of time before they have to charge them (unless you're accused of terrorist offences, in which case the period is longer and will get longer still if the government has anything to do with it) or let them go. I suspect Mr Darwin's window of custody was about to run out and they charged him with these two crimes in order to hold him for longer. No doubt further charges will follow.
