Top Scottish actress Shian Devonan plays Iris Morgan in next Monday’s drama documentary. Thing is – will “Indefinite films” after four years of legal wrangles, portray what actually happened? Klaus Neu, a German, was having an affair with Iris, her marriage to Daniel Morgan was on the rocks at the time of his murder.
As alluded to in David Bray’s book, Daniel Morgan had a penchant for adultery. The “Poulton debrief” mentions the Peabody Estate and teenage girls, plus what Morgan got up to, when he left the “Southern Investigations” office. Indeed, it was a contentious issue, with his business partner, Jonathan Rees, who was wrongfully accused and arrested several times.
New Scotland Yard’s investigation was a shambles. Campbell was drunk on duty, all evidence pointing to cuckoldry was not followed up. Inept Metropolitan Police myopic leadership led to golden opportunities being lost. In later years, ex Det Ch Supt David Imrie-Cook, latterly of Fife, followed a vindictive path, framing Rees and the Vian Brothers, and anyone else – such as Jonathan Rees associate Sid Fillery – who was on his radar screen.
Wait and see if left handed axe owner “Aussie Paul” makes an appearance. Or the Gozo drugs syndicate.
