Death of Richard Whittington-Egan

The death of SPR member Richard Whittington-Egan has been announced.

He was best known as a true crime author, but also wrote on ghosts, and his biography The Master Ghost Hunter: A Life of Elliott O'Donnell was published earlier this year.

An obituary in the Daily Telegraph, 20 September 2016, mentions the SPR: 'As a member of the Society for Psychical Research, he terrified himself in the course of many investigations of hauntings by ghosts and poltergeists.'

The obituary is online and can be found here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2016/09/19/richard-whittington-egan-expert-on-jack-the-ripper--obituary/
