Case Ref : 20190107, Carson, Michael (kit)

Official Narrative

A football coach killed himself by crashing into a tree on the first day of his sex abuse trial. Michael "Kit" Carson, 75, who had been accused of sexual abuse of boys under 16, crashed his car on the A1303, near Bottisham, Cambridgeshire, in January. Coroner Simon Milburn said he believed Mr Carson, who had been driving away from court at the time of the crash, had "intended to take his own life".

Mr Carson had denied abusing boys over the 30-year period from 1978. The inquest in Huntingdon was told there was no evidence of any braking or sharp steering by Mr Carson to avoid the tree. Post-mortem tests found the former youth football coach and scout, who had worked at Norwich City, Peterborough United and Cambridge United, died at the scene of the crash on 7 January from a traumatic brain injury.

What are you thoughts on this? I believe this to be a murder / assassination


I believe he was killed on way to trail as he was going to 'blow the lid' on other more significant paedophiles?

It sounds very suspicious.
