I think that her mental state was rightly taken into account.

There was some comment at the time that Bernadette (the mother) had been very unwise to hire someone in this unofficial way (putting an advert in a newspaper) rather than contacting Social Services for authorised childminders.

Perhaps it was a mistake but one that I had no problem myself with overlooking.

Mentioning no names (!) but if, in a more recent case, the parents had really made an honest mistake rather than spinning a yarn to cover up something else, I would sympathise with them 100% too!

P.S. On reflection, I'm not sure if you need to contact Social Services if your childminder comes to your house, rather than the more usual arrangement of you going to theirs.

I posted a link to this story sometime ago. I remember it well; it really seemed like a miracle when Simon was found alive and apparently physically unharmed. His abductor just seemed to be a lonely misfit.

I didn't know about his subsequent offending though.

Here's Simon's mother talking about the Shannon Matthews case before it was found to be a hoax.

P.S. The video was posted by the arch McCann supporter Bren Ryan, having originally been a doubter. I wonder what her current thinking is of the case.

I remember posting about this one, saying that as far as I knew, there had never been any publicity in the U K about the case before.

The suspect has now been charged.

Probably not though.

http://portugalresident.com/aljezur-bones-%E2%80%9Ca-woman%E2%80%9D-says-pj-as-forensics-now-probe-age

The mysterious bones discovered in a remote site near a ruined farm in the Aljezur hillside recently have been recovered by judicial police forensic experts and are now being tested for their age.

As a spokesman explained: “They could be six months old, six years or even 60. We don’t have the answers yet”.

All police appear to be sure of this far is that the bones belong to a woman.

As to any missing women in the area, our PJ source said this is not yet a matter under investigation.

“First we have to discover whether these are recent bones”, he explained. “Once we have that information, investigation into missing people may then go ahead”.

The bones were discovered at an abandoned farmstead by a man herding sheep who communicated his discovery to Aljezur’s archeological association, undertaking excavations at a site “around a kilometre” away (click here).

http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/35070538/peter-boys-father-expected-to-plead-guilty-for-sons-1997-death

Snipped:

According to the terms of his plea arrangement, Kema will be spared the possibility of spending life in prison, instead serving a 20-year sentence for manslaughter and a five-year sentence for hindering prosecution.

He'll be allowed to serve the terms concurrently as long as he shows authorities where his son's remains are. If the remains can't be recovered, he'll have to pass a polygraph test to prove he's being honest.

A formal sentencing hearing in the case has been scheduled for June 9.

What a terrible story that is. Kudos to the authorities for continuing with that case for 20 years. Never give up. No
