His children's Nanny?

On the evening of 7 November 1974, Sandra Rivett, the nanny of Lucan's children, was bludgeoned to death in the basement kitchen of the Lucan family home. Lady Lucan was also attacked when she went to investigate Rivett's whereabouts, a little after 9pm; escaping to the local Public House, the Plumbers Arms, she identified Lucan as her assailant. Police immediately opened a murder investigation, Lucan by then, had driven his borrowed Ford Corsair to visit a friend at Susan Maxwell-Scott's[1] home, in Uckfield, East Sussex. Lucan telephoned his mother from there asking her to collect his children as there had been an incident at the family home, he also penned a letter.[1] Hours later, he left the Uckfield property and posted an unstamped letter to his children.[1] The car was later found abandoned in Newhaven, its interior stained with blood and its boot containing a piece of bandaged lead pipe similar to one found at the crime scene. Lucan had vanished by the time the police issued a warrant for his arrest a few days later. The subsequent inquest in June 1975 into Ms Rivett's death named Lucan in the verdict as her killer
