This editorial, published two days after the conclusion of the Coroner's Inquest, describes Sam as a "proven liar" who is being shielded by his family and demands that he be taken to police headquarters for further questioning. It declares that if "average people' were involved in this murder it "would have been cleaned up long ago."
