specific concerns can a solicitor pass on info to the press from someone who is only trying to be honest an truthful and seek there advice. I saw the man with the womens body this is all in my letter to chief constable that the solicitor got.But because what i saw and the way it affected me and also the unusual digging i heard three days later i could not give evidence without being called unreliable.(they tried to make out i had imagined it) now 4 years later fresh evidence suggests i was alllways telling the truth.
I am worried the press will divulge the rest of my letter and possibly hamper the police new investigation
when this happened i went from being key witness to unreliable because i didnt mention the digging until two months later. what i saw affected me badly. but i know the area which is very remote and also where i live. there was something wrong but the police were adament and continued there search elsewhere so i wrote the letter and asked the solicitors advice and gave him acopy as well as sending it to the chief constable. it now turns out after the new appeal they are searching wherre i said i heard the digging
Thank you for your time in this matter. After the new appeal i didn't contact the police as i had managed to get this out of my system the new appeal brought forward new witnesses that seem to corroborate what i had said from the beginning. All i ever wanted was for someone to take me seriously i feel that the evidence brought forward in court the make colour and model of car, i repeatedly said there was something red in the boot, i described it to one officer a bit like a breakdown triangle(turns out it was a red and white sports umbrella and i was describing the triangle) I also repeatedly described the car as being unusually low to the ground( the police could not use the car in reconstruction as the suspension was too badly damaged) the fact i identified the man. If i could remember these details from weeks before when i was interviewed then why would i make up the unusual digging i heard three days later. why was there a mound of earth that would have could have been a shallow grave the mans voice i heard at the time of digging was an east coast accent the culprit came from Edinburgh. I have to live with this on my cons hence and there is a girls mum and dad who still dont have a grave to visit. Just feel so stuck in the middle of a rock and a hard place any advice would be appreciated. thank you again and i did rate you.
