Ian Redmond Was Killed By A Bull Shark, A Tiger Shark And The Moon: All The Tabloids Facts

by | 22nd, August 2011

WHEN Ian Redmond was killed by a shark in the Seychelles the Sun said he had been “eaten“. He wasn’t. The paper then told us that the shark was a bull shark, of a type that had inspired the film Jaws. Now the Sun tells us that the shark was “thought to be a Great White“. You know, like in the film Jaws.

And this shark is controlled by the moon, apparently:

THE shark that killed a honeymoon Briton may be driven to strike by the full moon, fishermen warned yesterday.

May.

They fear the predator… will head back to its Seychelles feeding ground for a THIRD TIME within days.

Fear.

Jean Baptiste-Pool, who has hunted sharks since he was a boy, revealed how he had predicted the beast would return to claim a second victim – IT consultant Ian Redmond, 30.

The expert tells us:

“He could kill again any time after August 29.”

Well, yes…

But we want facts. So, it’s back to the Sun’s in-house experts:

It was a carbon copy of the death of French tourist Nicolas Virolle, 32, on Anse Lazio Beach on August 1 – also three days after the new moon.

M. Virolle was scuba diving. Mr Redmond wasn’t. And Let’s see those new moon times for the Seychelles:

1 Jul 2011 – New Moon at 12:54

30 Jul 2011 – New Moon at 22:40

29 Aug 2011 – New Moon at 07:04

Ian Redmond was killed on August 16.

Such are the facts and the Sun’s moon science.
