Morwen, if I knew anything about this case and wanted to communicate it, I would have done so before. I can only add the general observation, not too novel, that songs inspired by real events sometimes tell you the truth about the author's feelings, but never about the facts. Calypso is particularly often about tall tales and fantasies, with built-in tongue-in-cheek. Sorry to disillusion you.
