Was he murdered and if so by whom? Did he kill himself—and if so, why should this happily married man whose popularity was immense take his own life? A year later Britains second world champion of the era, the middleweight Randolph Turpin, was found shot dead in a room above his cafe in Leamington Spa. How did this man who earned thousands during his career come to end his life in a backstreet cafe? Or was he also murdered? Morton looks at the role of their managers and promoters, and the relationship with the Boxing Board of Control.

Should many of Mills fights and some of Turpins have been sanctioned? Is this in part what led to their deaths? Is there any possible truth in the persistent rumours that Mills was the so-called Jack the Stripper, killer of prostitutes in Hammersmith?
