This blog was started to help the police catch Julia Holmes. Her victims were spread across the world so it would be hard and time consuming for them to get the full picture.
It will probably now serve to help build a picture for their inquests and hopefully, lessons can be learned from it.
I am in touch with her family but will not, under any circumstances hand their details over. They have had enough to deal with and I would ask that they be left alone to try to come to terms with what has happened.
The reporter that we have all been working with is Jilly Beattie http://www.belfastlive.co.uk/authors/jilly-beattie/ - Jilly continued searching for Julia when all the other reporters moved on, keeping her story in the papers. She is also the only person who managed to get the police to take notice when she was found again in March and when the bodies were discovered, it was Jilly yet again that informed us before it hit the papers. Her goal was to catch Julia so that she was sent to prison and she was tenacious in her efforts. She was always on the side of the victims and families instead of just chasing a story.
