Brighton Murder - Further appeal from the Police

13 posts in this topic

I have received a further request from Sussex Police which is copied here in full:

__________________________________________________________________

Quote from: Sussex Police - Operation Merewood

Sussex Police are appealing for anyone with information on the murder of Andrea Waddell in Brighton on 15th October 2009 to come forward.

Andrea was 29 years of age and worked as a model, escort and prostitute. She had usernames of 'Fuchsia', 'imsosexy', 'extrasexy' and 'glovepuppet' but there may have been others.

Officers would particularly like to hear from clients of Andrea and any colleagues who may have recently had contact with a Scottish male in his early 40s.

Sussex Police appreciate that people may be reticent in coming forward, but would stress that we are committed to bringing Andrea's killer to justice. Anyone speaking to police in relation to this enquiry ill be treated with the utmost sensitivity.

If you have information which could help please call police on 0845 60 70 999 or email Merewoodappeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk

This is a secure email address that is restricted to the intelligence team of this investigation.

It should not matter and in fact an enquiry of that nature is a little intrusive however without setting a precedent here it was made because of the lack of knowledge that I am no longer a Moderator here.

It can be copied to any other punting board as people see fit.

Quick update as I missed this news too:

On reflection my enquiry was a little intrusive, but not intended.

I was merely interested as to why the Police didn't make a direct appeal to Admin.

In any case the link you posted seems to look like they have got him.

An arrest is one thing, a trial and conviction another, if people have evidence or information they should co-operate with the police.

I do not know why this came direct to me and not to Galahad, so cannot comment further on that aspect.

But more than arrested, charged with murder, for that charge to have been made, one would hope that a senior experienced CPS lawyer has been involved and is satisfied that there is sufficent evidence to charge. The CPS dont usually charge people these days unless they are pretty sure of a conviction, as Im sure every 'not guilty' verdict would be a negative Pi for them.

I am sure that your answer was completely and factually correct but have to ask one small further question.................what the fuck has your answer got to do with what you quoted? :cool:

Are you suggesting that the moment someone is charged then both sides should then stop accumulating and reviewing evidence? :P

Yes, it is strangely liberating, however, if you take out the expletives, could you possible answer the question old bean? Otherwise it appears that you are trying to take the debate off down a side street in the fashion of Thomas Aquinas rather than answering or speaking to the point.

Thanks for posting that WykeTyke. I too had completely missed the fact that someone had been caught and convicted of this horrible crime. I hope he never sees the light of day again.

Not true at all. Policy with regard to some offences is to charge if there is ANY evidence rather than if the offence is likely to be proven beyond reasonable doubt. And bail conditions can be worse than the potential penalty.
