There are many facts and reasons  that give us reason to know Edward Paisnel was the person who murdered Joy Norton

The Evil Edward Paisnel


The Perfect Crime

There exists the temptation among certain individuals to carry out an act in such a way that someone else takes the blame. Some could call this the perfect crime many feel now this is what Paisnel did and to what he was referring to when he wrote the letter to a leading officer at the time working on the child sexual abuse cases in the Island of Jersey on August 10th 1966. This letter was received just seven short months after Alan Norton's conviction signed Wait & See. "You have already a man in prison for life but do not know what for. I have always wanted to do the perfect crime and I have done that".

Strangely the reference that many including the authors of two books one being Paisnels wife took this to be Norton. The first book "The Beast of Jersey " written by Joan Paisnel included a full print out including the reference. Subsequent editions brought out excluded this reference in the letter. The first book " The Untimely Silence" also detailed the letter sent to the Police in full, however subsequent editions and the follow up books reprinted "The Final Chapter" excluded this section of the letter in the book. Interesting to note in the original book by Ward Rutherford there are many asterisks on being (A Referral to the letter being printed in full)

 The letter written by Paisnel;

My Dear Sir I think it is just the time to tell you that you are just wasting your time, you will never be able to catch me at any time I had done wat I always intended to do and remembered will not stop at this, but I will be fair with you and give you a chance. I have never had much out of this life but I intend to get everything I can now you have all ready a man in prison for life * but do not know what for. I have always wanted to do the perfect crime I have done that, but this time let the moon shine brite in September because this time it must be perfect not one but two I am not a maniac by a very long shot but I like to play with you people you will hear from me before September and I will give you all the clues just to see if you can catch me. Yours sincerely Wait and See.

*This is Norton

Even after the conviction the Police knew of the reference to Norton and still they did nothing .

The anonymous letter written into the police of which we
have a copy and is publicised in all the literature written about Paisnel was sent to the Jersey Police back in 1966.It was recognised in court that the letter with reference to Alan Norton serving time in prison for a crime he did not commit was written by the monster.

We sent our copy of the letter written by Paisnel along with a handwritten sample of Alan's handwriting to Mme Josse who was not at all aware of who's handwriting she was analysing. She was not familiar with either case of Paisnel or Norton and we print here below her direct analyse of both handwriting samples for you to view.

Mme Sylvie Josse is an independent  graphologist in France. She is a qualified, recognised graphologist who travels to Paris working on high profile cases for the Police not withstanding her outstanding work with the Gendarmerie Nationale. Mme Josse was presented with the handwritten letter written by Paisnel having no knowledge of the evil Paisnal represented. We are now posting her results on the profile and representation of his character for you to see for yourselves.

A personality marked by immaturity, by important personal demanding and expectations to which he can't put any limit, and by a strong mistrust that can quickly arouse defensive reactions or even aggressiveness.



Intellectually, Mr PAISNEL has a more immediate way of thinking than a real deep reflexion. His judgment is subjective, without real lucidity, coloured by a sensitivity and an emotional fragility hardly controlled. He is distrustful, suspicious, very critical, but without inner mark to stabilize his thought ; and he suffers from the fluctuations of his moods and fears.

If he can have an overall perception of situations, he has on the other hand no capacity of analysis and even less deductive reasoning skill. He can have asharp critical sense but uses it in a wrong or false way, more to destroy and distrust what is told to him than to adjust his thought. He is irrational in his reflexion, suddenly reacts on a detail to which he gives an importance outof all proportion. For him, it's all or nothing ; he has neither reason nor aim. He can't build a logical and coherent reasoning but follows his immediate idea, passion, desire.

Nevertheless,he is not a fool or an idiot. He has even quite a good thinking flexibility and can be rather ingenious when he needs an idea or searches for a solution. He wants to think differently, willing to distinguish himself, to stand out from the usual line of thinking, and he can sometimes surprise with a suddenly judicious point of view through a usual quite confusing pattern of thought. He certainly has a good memory and may even be curious of some intellectual subjects. He also needs to by pass restrictive rules, to circumvent unpleasant realities, restrictions and obligations, which makes him less than reliable.



The personality is marked and even emphasized by a strong immaturity and by a state of dependence to his own desires and longings, to which he can't resist nor put a curb on, and that he has to satisfy immediately

Self-confidenceis weak, heckled, and that keeps him in a defensive attitude, for he must absolutely avoid showing the smallest flaw in himself. It is certainly not fully conscious, but he has the felling that he has not been given a place or proper rights, that he has not been loved and appreciated as he deserved. He can't trust anybody and least of all himself. In the same time, he braves everything and everyone, defies authority. He can't stand to be only a pawn among the others. He has to reveal and prove to himself that he is powerful,strong, authoritative and that he can do what he wants when and where he wants to. People become pawns for him, on which he plays his power.

Contradiction affects his relational attitude, with disconcerting quick change of opinion and of attitude. He has to stop his emotions that could quickly overwhelmed him. He is neither reliable nor predictable, with a perverted behaviour. He can suddenly protest, be aggressive, violent, vicious, even though he was just a moment before kind and generous. He has to conquer other people's attention, to mark his presence by any mean, which can be surprise, fear, lack of understanding.

A strongfeeling of frustration also animates him, altogether with a feeling of injustice, of prejudice. His demands have no limit and so can't be satisfied,in any way. That can lead him to seduction and manipulation behaviours,underlined by the need of controlling his environment, or to harmful and destructive behaviours.

He deploys an immoderate authority to impose on everyone. Everybody must be in his pocket, focused on himself, which in fact only shows his lack of inner security and stability.



In his activity, he can be very involved, especially if he feels enhanced by his work or his results. He undertakes then with courage and optimism, lessening problems or difficulties. He adapts to reality, seeing to it in his own way.

His need of playing a part and have a social importance is dominating, and can give him a special grip to go through, even if most of the time he gives up before the end.

He can also develop a particular skill in a specific field (often technical), that allows him to enhance himself. He is not strictly speaking thorough in his work, but he can have a sense of detail, be meticulous when what he undertakes is important for him. On the other hand, his rhythm of work is irregular, suddenly putting the brakes on what he is doing or accelerating all of a sudden to finish something. It's difficult for him to define clearly his aims and he is most of the time tossed about by the events more than he is able to assume them in a self sufficient way.





Mr PAISNEL is torn apart between a strong will and necessity to exist in the opinion of people and a weakened self-confidence, with the feeling of a great injustice against himself that make him bear the whole world a grudge. That makes him suspicious, defensive, often vindictive and even nasty, malicious, dangerous. His demands have no limit and his behaviour is whole and unbending. He is jealous, envious. He can hardly stand on steady bases that could give him some assertiveness and calm down his fears and hate. He needs to be the focus of the attention and tries to be different. That gives him the feeling of his own power and superiority.

Candidat:NORTON Alan- 70 -

Formation: Educated working class

Documents examinés: copy of manuscript document -





A personality apparently marked by a defensive alertness, a need to remain well centered on himself, in order to be able to resist more efficiently to external influences or intrusion.



The intellectual approach occurs from a considerate observation of the facts, of the reality. He has a practical intelligence with a solid common sense. He needs to gather as many elements as possible that allow him to understand and integrate the situations. He remains close tothe events, objective and realistic by necessity.

He is logical and rational in his progression of mind. Nevertheless, he develops a thought flexibility that helps him to build a personal comprehension and understanding. He is smart to create connections and links between facts or ideas to give his thoughts cohesion and solidity.

At the same time, he has a rather unyielding or even though side; he is some what conventional, conformist, attached to strong and solid references. And that can sometimes diminish his open-mindedness. He bases much on his knowledge, on his experiences where he looks for absolute certainty, solid convictions that are as much confidence elements and reassurance, in a context where doubt seems to be forbidden.

He has a rather sharp critical sense that increases his feeling of diffidence, or at least a certain difficulty to trust what he sees, hears, reads, or what he is told. However, he can sometimes put on a display of naivety, ingenuity. Securely hooked on his own references, wanting to keep his thought under control, he may at some times have a small lack of lucidity. Deepening his attention to make sure that he will better understand the problems or the situations, he restrains his field of investigation and of perception, narrowing down his availability to elements that could lead him to a different vision and understanding of the problems he is concerned about.

More over, his need of keeping a good personal coherence which gives him perseverance, loyalty to his own ideas, is also likely to give him a difficulty to bring into question, with maybe some stubbornness.



The personality is marked by two tendencies that seem to be contradictory, but give it cohesion and logic.

On the one side, he is a man who keeps up in a permanent state of defensive vigilance. He has to build his life on the giving up of some illusions and he has to accept it. He withdraws into himself to avoid self-exposure. He is watchful to postpone his reactions and to restrain his first movement of temper. That can give him a prudent side, and sometimes a rather inhibited appearance.

On the other side, he is supported by an inner strength, a solidity that enables him to face adversity. The loss of some of his illusions is not a reason to remain in a position of weakness. He lives in the present. He faces the difficulties, defends his territory and/or his individuality. He pays close attention to guard against the outside and not to allow intrusion, even when it's difficult for him to oppose.

He develops quite good qualities of sociability. He must stand up, respectable, credible, convincing. He is rather conventional in his view and he endeavors to comply with a smooth picture of himself,conformist, and adherent to his surrounding references, keeping by himself his own feelings. He avoids exposing himself to allow a better adaptation in his environment.

He doesn't always have a sharp listening. He is too much centered on his own references where he finds stability and coherence to be able to easily accept others' criterions. That can give him a reserved appearance. He seems to stop himself from trusting anyone, and doing so, he wants to protect his own sensibility. However, he is certainly very helpful, wanting to collect the approbation of his relations. He hopes to be exemplary, in his behavior and in his thought, without bearing weight on the others.



In his work, he is courageous, willful. He goes through his work, without asking himself useless questions. His aims a redefinite, clear and he goes forward regularly, using his knowledge, his experience, his practical skill to obtain the results he is awaited for.

He may not be very quick or proactive. He has to understand before entering in a project. He has to plan, organize, to have known marks. He needs visible limits and frame work that gather him.

He is logical and practical, concrete in his reasoning; he has skill and can develop good technical qualities and abilities. He is precise, rigorous. He respects the rules, the process and methods, and that give him a good reliability and a steadiness on which he can stand to justify his place.

His organization is functional and controlled. He endeavors to keep control on what enters in his responsibility area. He doesn't easily grant his trust and he rather do his work in a self sufficient way,using his expertise, his skills and relying on his own experience.





Alan is a rigorous, serious and thoughtful man. He needs to settle himself in solid references and it holds him in a logic of concentration, of refocusing. Even when he doesn't have a very strongself-confidence, he hardly gives his trust or faith to others. He seems to have lost his illusions and that keeps him in the necessity of being strong by himself and not to wait any help from others.

He is a watchful observer of his environment, in which he measures his involvement, wanting to be useful and known for his personal qualities, but also concerned of further exposure to outside judgment orcritic.
