Quotes

Det Ch Insp Peter Montgomery said: "I continue to ask those with information about Mr Collins' murder, particularly those in the Barcroft estate, to think again about the awfulness of what happened and about the Collins family. It is never too late to come forward."
The father said: "Guillible as it seems now, we actually believed that. It's sad to say that now."
At the time Mr McKenna could not be located and "his details were circulated as a person wanted for arrest"
Judge David McFarland told Mr McPeake: "You have now been acquitted by this jury of all the charges. You are now free to go."
