  • Only 22 years old when he started serving time. Died at 66 while still incarcerated. How tragic all round.

  • How many young men knew that he was in Millhaven ? (rhetorical question). In the absence of anything other than general awareness that this was a serious crime, how is that a deterrent ? What was the cost of keeping him in prison for forty years. Was that cost effective ? Were any attempts made to ‘rehabilitate him ?
