The intriguing case of the first man in Britain to be convicted and acquitted of murder…Will Sion Jenkins be the second.
True Detective November 2004
No one saw the murder of Mary McCarthy. No one could say exactly which day it happened. No murder weapon was ever identified. No direct evidence could be laid at the door of any man in the village of New Inn near where Mary lived in rural Tipperary, a village that was content to turn its back on justice. But someone had to hang for it, and that person was farmer Harry Gleeson.
That was the start of what must rate as one of the greatest travesties of justice in Irish legal history, a travesty in which the real culprits were the parish priest, corrupt cops, an incompetent judge and villagers who erected a wall of silence around the death of Mary McCarthy.
Many people believe that Mrs. Frances Stewart wrote her own death warrant when she wrote those all-important letters…
When Danielle awoke from her coma the police had already caught the man who raped and shot her. One ordeal was over; another one was about to start.
