Couldn’t agree more dispondent – if I were in the position of Damien’s family, I’d want nothing left to chance.

If the Police were to ignore every lead they received from members of the public be they malicious or otherwise, then many of the ‘cold cases’ re-opened would never result in a safe prosecution and prison sentence for those responsible. So one must conclude that the Police have good grounds to extend the bail for these three Island people and therefore, we should for the sake of… Read more »

Am I right in thinking one of the main witnesses (seen in the chip shop at the time with DN) has since passed away?

if the police have not got the evidence to charge anybody by now,they should leave people alone until they do,also if the case had been investigated properly 16yrs ago,the police would not be acting on malicous rumours/and false imformation now,as all the leads they have had have led to nothing,surely you would have to question the sources of this information,and motives behind leading the police up the… Read more »

as i said, hindsight is great. I have no idea how the police allegedly lost cctv evidence, but they did and harking on about it now does no-one any good. what the police should be, and are doing is following the leads that they have now. mistakes have been made im sure, but until damien is found the resources should concentrate on what happened to him, not… Read more »
