The Case of Fnu Lnu

Written by Pat's Papers | Monday, 15 July 2013 8:01 AM

It’s the acronym used by investigators to describe someone who is seen or heard by not identified: First Name Unknown, Last Name Unknown. The Times says the shorthand has taken on a life of its own in the court system, often being mistaken for a real name.
