Thanks for this. Remember when it happened but think that Coroner needs to reopen.

While not a literary masterpiece, the mentioned book "Death In The Sand" is quite an eye opener. If all is as the author has reported then the investigation and findings are a sad indictment on the WA police, coronial and justice systems.

I agree, Terry, but I doubt recollections of events that happened 30 years ago, distorted by the passage of time and the desire to self-preserve, will do much to improve the result.

Cheers

Have to ask, why Mick? Are you looking for further info or what?

Cheers

Looking at the url for the link to the photos in the first post I would suggest Mick is chasing a new inquest into the events surrounding the disappearance of the two boys.

After reading Norm's well researched book, I feel there are too many unanswered questions, botched investigations, cover ups and so on - in my opinion a new inquest is needed.

Those two lads were treated very poorly - they deserve to have the best inquiry possible into the matter.

This story has shades of Azaria Chamberlain written all over it -cover ups etc.

There is a lot of difference between
‘Human Being’ and ‘Being Human’.

Couldn't agree more Phil!

Not only were the two boys treated poorly by the people charged with looking after them, their parents were treated with absolute disdain by the people charged with conducting both the seach operation and the inquest.

I think this says it all

"No greater honour will ever be bestowed on an officer, or a more profound duty imposed on him, than when he is entrusted with the investigation of the death of a human being. It is his duty to find the facts, regardless of colour or creed, without prejudice, and to let no power on earth deter him from presenting these facts to the court without regard to personality - Anonymous"

Maybe the time has come to reopen this investigation. Given the notariaty of some of those involved the chances are unlikely.
