(note: I'm not quite ready to actually "create" this page yet, so for the moment this is sort of a workspace where I'm storing links I find, and will organize them, probably within the next week)--Mustex 04:09, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Very well, I'll start searching for specific things, I hope you don't mind if I save them in this thread as I find them. That we I can keep everyone up to date on where I am. As an interesting note, according to his FAQ he believes what was in Highage Cemetary was actually a ghost, and not a vampire (he says he believes in neither vampires, nor the tooth fairy...and somehow seems to think these two idea are interconnected): http://www.davidfarrant.org/faq.html --Mustex 14:48, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Quote from the same page: "That is a truly 'loaded question'! The simple answer is, I didn't do anything. I was wrongfully convicted for two offences of desecration in Highgate Cemetery during the course of our investigation into the unexplained phenomenon there.

It is also true that I sent two 'voodoo effigies' to two police detectives in 1973 for which I received an additional prison term of two years. I never denied sending these two effigies (indeed I signed two accompanying notes sent with them and sent these by recorded delivery) but they were sent to protect somebody who the police had physically abused." (he also denies dancing naked in a graveyard) He believes that what happened at Highgate involved "images replayed from the past," but "I don't like the word 'ghosts.'" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Aw_7JUts9g --Mustex 14:58, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Oh, but despite not believing Vampires, he calls his organization "The Highgate Vampire Society": http://www.davidfarrant.org/about/index.html--Mustex 20:16, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
