    and rightly so..assuming the stories coming out of the Sunday World have some truth about them.

    Is O’Hagan’s murder somehow entitled to a greater degree of invesigation than all the other unsolveds because he was a journalist?

    Maybe so, actually. Obviously the pain to the family would be the same, but one could say that the existence of a free and unintimidated press is vital to society – so the murder of a journalist is therefore more detrimental to society than the murder of your average civilian.

    Hope that doesn’t sound too callous, its not my intention.

    what stories are these – about O’Hagan’s past? or about the present of the murder gang?

    thanks

  • I heard this mentioned on the radio this morning and note with interest how it develops.
