    Over 20 unsolved murders going back to 1980’s A national disgrace this goes far beyond justice delayed Justice denied this is complicity by the inept incompetent and corrupt Law enforcement institutions and the government. Absolutely no value for money only big talk about Coldcases being reviewed. For What ?? Until a very corrupt element controlled by and run by our Ring society are systematically removed or push out these terrible situations will never be resolved or even addressed and from the recent promotion it looks like we are a generation out before that will take place. And where there is NO JUSTICE there will Be NO PEACE and fact we understand far too well in these beautiful little Islands.

    Can someone please explain why air support was needed for skeletal remains? Me thinks if there was any foul play the culprit would have been long gone.
