In Tibor's letter example, the acrostic code started at the 4th word, but it used the first letters of each carrier word. We gave a fair bit of thought to that and whilst there are probably other reasons our thoughts are that given 'typical' acrostics start with the first letter of the first word in a line or a sentence, it would be an immediate red flag for the code hunter. We ended up with a numerical sequence of 4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10 which represented the positions of each carrier word in the piece. In other words, Tibor wanted someone to find that letter and the code. That's something to consider when looking at any other suicide where a note was left.
Verse 70 also has an acrostically coded name, the name is DANETTA yet again.
Verse 70, seems to have more in common with the Tudor gold watch ad example in that the solution relates to the individual letter placement within words. The words themselves seem to have been placed in a line sequence being line 1, line 2, line 3, line 4, line 4, line 4 and then back to line 1. The placement within words follows the strict 7 number/7 letter sequence set in Tibor's last letter and on the SM code page
Indeed line 1 D D 1st letter first word Indeed reading right to left
Was line 2 A A 2nd letter fourth-word reading left to right
Hand, line 3 N N 3rd letter last word reading left to right
Bare line 4 E E 4th letter third-word reading left to right
Penitence line 4 T T 5th letter fourth-word reading left to right
Thread line 4 T T 6th letter second word reading right to left
Repentance line 1 A A 7th letter third-word reading left to right
Once again the acrostically coded name 'DANETTA' appears in a document related to the Somerton Man case. To this time we have been able to show the use of an acrostic code in Tibor's last letter, The SM Code page, Verse 70 as above and also in the Tudor gold watch advert. There is good reason to think it appears in at least one more advert of the time and linked to the X3239 telephone number.
(Interestingly, in the Tudor gold watch ad example, the word 'Tudor' is the 4th word in that part of the sequence, two letters of that 4th, the letters U and D being the second and third letters in the word TUDOR are effectively replaced by the second letter in the first word and the 3rd letter in the third word giving us the name of TIBOR. In this case we had the number sequence 1,2,3,4,5 all based on the positions of individual letters within words.)
