It’s being reported that there’s been a major breakthrough in the murder of 14 year old Charlene Downes. The text below is from today’s issue of THE SUN and it comes just a week after Charlene’s mother, Karen, has published her intention to sue Lancashire Police Constabulary. Considering that we have all pressed the police for justice for Charlene, for over 13 years, with little or no success, this seems like a very strange coincidence.
Therefore, we can’t take anything for granted and will have to wait and see. But, if I was asked to trust the police to tell the truth, my response would be to say that you’re having a laugh! Nobody, who is in their right mind and aware of the lies and deceit perpetrated by today’s British Police Force would be naive enough to believe there is any credence in this story, unless they publish some credible evidence. Without seeing the man’s identity and/or any connection he may have to the two individuals that the police have said, in the past, that they believe murdered Charlene, we should not ‘hold our breath’.
Here’s what the Sun has written, today….
‘Schoolgirl Charlene, 14, went missing nearly 14 years ago in a case that has been dogged by police blunders
‘DETECTIVES are today quizzing a suspect over the murder of teenager Charlene Downes, who is feared to have been chopped up into KEBABS.
No trace of her has ever been found but detectives believe her body was chopped up and had “gone into kebabs” at a takeaway in the town.
Lancashire Police announced a breakthrough in the cold case after a man, 51, who lived in Blackpool at the time of Charlene’s disappearance was arrested this morning on suspicion of her murder.
Last month her family reportedly revealed they are to sue police over the investigation.
Charlene’s mum Karen is said to be taking legal action after detectives appealed for witnesses with “new” CCTV footage that had been sitting in their archives for more than a decade.
The investigation has been dogged by problems ever since. A 2007 murder trial collapsed because of police errors and the IPCC watchdog ruled the force’s blunders meant the killer may never be found.
Last year a cold case team revisited the investigation and discovered CCTV footage of Charlene walking with her sister Rebecca on the day she vanished.
It was released on the 13th anniversary of her disappearance in November and again for a fresh appeal on the BBC’s Crimewatch Live Roadshow last month.
Karen says if it had been shown closer to the time she vanished it could have led to vital evidence from witnesses.
She told the Daily Mirror: “It is unbelievable that they have had that footage all those years and never used it.
“It is an absolute disgrace and an insult to the memory of my dead daughter.
“Maybe if the CCTV was shown at the time I could have got justice years ago and put Charlene to rest but now my pain continues.
“I am absolutely disgusted. Every day is still a living hell. And instead of helping me the police add to it as they never tell me anything and seem determined to keep me in the dark.”
A £100,000 reward has been offered for information on what happened to Charlene.
Officers from Lancashire Police have taken more than 4,800 witness statements and followed 10,500 lines of inquiry but the case remains unsolved.
Detectives suspect Charlene may have been a victim of sexual exploitation in Blackpool.
It was revealed that at least 60 schoolgirls were groomed for sex by takeaway workers, who would ply youngsters with food, alcohol and cigarettes in return for sexual favours.’
Where are the decent, honest police officers; and do any of them still exist?
GONE ARE THE DAYS WHEN A BRITISH POLICEMAN
WAS A FRIEND OF THE PEOPLE
A message to ALL British police officers….
If YOU believe you are a decent policeman; why don’t you speak out and act in favour of the British people?
By keeping quiet and following the instructions of your traitorous bosses, YOU are also guilty of Treason!
But, you can redeem your honour by speaking and behaving honestly and upholding the rights of your British brothers and sisters.
