It has been two months since the Metropolitan Police were so comprehensively debagged in public. I intended to stop here, to all intents and purposes the Daniel Morgan murder case is now closed. Det Ch Supt Dave Cook still faces his grim future and is throwing minions under the bus, even as I type.
New Scotland Yard spent much time, effort and money in deflecting from the real murderer and fitting up the innocent, Jonathan Rees and the Vian Brothers. They used the whole Kim James case to frame those in “Southern Investigations” whom they used as fall guys.
One thing that emerged from O’Loan’s report was the (very) close link between Cook and Jukes (also Higgins, the blue eyed boy of 77th Brigade). Jukes connected with Ian Hurst, a serial fantasist claiming to have handled “Stakeknife” (see Operation Kenova). I only became involved in the Morgan murder after Haslam, Hurst’s associate, began trying to stalk me. At least I had a breakthrough there, recently a photo came to light showing Haslam’s Dad. An RAF serviceman from Jamaica. Nobody known which of these it is, not even Ellen J Stow. Odd that no death threats posted these past two months.
In some respect today’s blogge post is a wrapping up. Goggzilla will still report on developments in the Morgan murder. In terms of tying up loose ends, Fintan Creaven (a Metropolitan policeman) committed the murder. Old Bill were desperate to point the finger of accusation in another direction, hence Rees and the Vians, plus others, facing life sentence for a murder they never committed.
Creaven’s motive? Initially I thought the Bonnicci drugs cartel of Gozo, however, adultery could also be the prime motive, Morgan was an enthusiastic cuckold and any outraged partner could have paid Creaven to do the deed.
