Sensationalist story still ran in the media, but from an investigative point of view, it had reached a standstill. Then, one year later in september, two thousand and nine there was a bright through. Irish tell was black nokia and seventy two phone was traced to a house in the city of Valencia had located sixty kilometers esteve, delhi. a man by the name of rum bull, was using the device with a new sim card when police. I spoke to wrong. He said he sister had found. Phone in may of the previous year show worked as a maid close to where they tell was had lived a few days off the noise motors. She spotted the phone on the track, a few kilometers away. She pocketed the device and gifted it too, brother, but he hadn't started using it until the following year. After purchasing a new sim card, neither of them had any idea.
That it had belonged to the murdered teenager, police were able to verify the sibling stories and ruled the mad, as suspects an examination of various she's phone found, no photos, text messages or dada The discovery of the knocker alone seemed to disprove the say, be ice theory that haemorrhages three acquaintances committed the murders. All three men had said both funds were destroyed. There was evidence indicating their admissions were unreliable. this development seemed to result in a shake up at this say, be I that same mountains about two thousand nine cases lady investigator was removed with the agent deciding that he's tenure had simply ended. Then
The investigation into the murders of irish, I tell ya around him. Raj Ben jockey was handed over to a new team. Right away, the second to say, be attained took a very different approach to their predecessors. The new investigators focused fur done, arrow she's, autopsy report. Doctors who kneeled, though, Hooray, had completed the post mortem and found no evidence of a sexual assault or injury, stating tat. There was nothing abnormal about irish she's, genitalia swabs taken from her vagina had no trace of seamen in accra. over two thousand. Eight doktor, though hooray given a second statement to the original say, be I attain this time He added a line that red during post mortem examination. I observed that the vegetal cavity of the deceased was dilated.
This sentence call the attention of the second say bay. I came. Doktor die her. I was asked to provide them with another statement which would be his third. This time he went into greater detail. Riding On external examination, the virginal opening was found prominently, wide open, virginal, cavity and cervix was clearly vision, Hymen was ruptured and healed old. The doctors observation seemed to imply that reshape had a likely being engaged in sexual intercourse around the time of her murder. Later he wouldn't Or explicitly side that hey thought, her vagina had been washed to remove If any evidence of such activity here reference to her hymen was an allusion to her having lost her virginity well before the attack, despite the fact that a hymen can be
ruptured in other ways and he's no indication of sexual experience, doktor dough hurray said he hadn't bothered to mention these details in his original report, because the findings were quote non specific and very strange. He had also never completed an autopsy on a female body before so he didn't realize. Such things should have been recorded, Doctor who completed haemorrhages autopsy was also called upon again soon. Came to the new lady investigator, hey noted that the cut to haemorrhages throat was consistent with a very sharp edged light instrument. When asked about the significance of a mirage and irish she's matching neck words. The doktor added identical position of the injury and the skill with which they cut was made clearly point towards a surgically trained person.
Investigators concluded that a scalpel had most likely been used to slash the victims throats and noted that, as dentist, they tell was had surgical experience, Examining the crime scene photos investing is also came to the conclusion that the weapon used to hit both victims in the head was a golf club. This was, They had you or v, shaped injuries as it happened. Irish his father. Raj ash was an amateur golfer and don't set of clubs which were kept in haemorrhages quarters. A forensic experts was asked to analyze the crime saying based on photographs and a visit to the apartment which they tell was had long since vacated
after studying pitches, very chaise, bloodstained bedroom. He pointed out that there appeared to be two distinct impact spotters on the wall behind the bed head. He believed this meant they come from. Two different victims, meaning arusha and hemorrhage were attacked in the same room. At the same time, this supported the theory that the pair, what to do the rain bed when they were murdered, then the killer. Dragged him haemorrhages body up to the terrorists, to conceal a blog found on the staircase leading to the terrorist, was seen to confirm this. The fact that the stuffed toys on irish is bad. Had no blood on them pointed to the kill addressing the crime scene after the murders. The way they had covered irish she's body with a blanket and her favorite bag also suggested a personal connection to the victim.
To the new team of investigators, all the evidence was pointing back to a theory that noise police said sided from the start. She tell why had been having an intimate relationship with hemorrhage ben Johnny and the two were victims of an honour killing. On monday may twenty four two dozen ten, which would they nourishes sixtyth birthday, an article The new investigation was published in english language newspaper. The pie need quite, in several unnamed say be I sources. The story hinted that right just tell why was again being considered as a suspect. brush objected to the article prompting this. Maybe I to deny ever speaking with the publication seven months later, in december, the agency concluded
their investigation and released a final report on the case in it they official a clear, krishna totter I rushed through MA. Am v J Montel of any involvement As well as pointing to the trio's alibis investigators said the servants wouldn't have done, drink alcohol late at night in the home of one of their employers The cb, I also ruled out the possibility that an intruder committed the crimes citing the lack of force entry automotive. It was poor, into doubt that an intruder would have no reason to hide haemorrhages body or stay jerry she's room. Ultimately the c b. I concluded that circumstantial evidence pointed to rush tell why committing the murders in a fit of rage. After five hi mirage in bed with these daughter, his wife new poor, was accused of helping to cover up the crime
Only those who lived in the apartment would have the time and access required to cleaner, reshape remove. Any trace of hemorrhage from her room and stage the same. However, there was a total lack of physical evidence. Jew in part original investigators filing to secure the crime scene, While I was suspected that russia used one of these golf clubs and a scalpel to carry out the attack, there was nothing to prove this. They had no blood stained clothing Fingerprints saw dna, confirming rush was the killer. Consequently, The save I recommended that the case be closed. Without charging the tell was, rush and new poor tell while were devastated by this turn of events. Though they were not being charged. The report made shock.
Allegations against them the couple I did to file a petition asserting their innocence and demanding that the case remain open. on Tuesday january, twenty five, two thousand and eleven as the pair made there way to a magistrate court that exclusively looked at c b. I cases they were followed by crowds police and tv news crews public. Dressed in annoyed. I double murder was as strong as ever sudden a young man rushed from the crowd towards russia? Tell why, was carrying a make clever. He swung The clever at russia's face slashing he's right, Jake. Roger s raised his hands to protect himself and the man swung again this time he broke one of russia's fingers and badly wounded his hands. The perpetrator was
quickly overpowered and russia was rescued but suffered a sliced artery cut, tendons and dissevered facial nerve, he's right, shake was permanently scarred. The perpetrator was a twenty nine year old vigilante named would solve sharma, who had previously attacked a form of police chief, Sharma said he was angry about the slow progress in the noise. I case. While rush was recovering from the violent attack. The court case proceeded. After considering the tell was petition, the magistrate dismissed it and went a step further she turned the savvy eyes closure report into a charge shade declaring that There was enough evidence to charge the couple for irish sea and haemorrhages murders run
ash and newport tell why were ordered to stand trial. The tell was appealed the order first at the states, high court and then at the supreme court. They lost both appeals and their trial began in may two thousand thirteen five years after their daughters, murder,. As well as having to answer to cancer murder that were charged with destroying evidence, the prosecutor presented the court with serbia s theory of how the murders had unfolded while russia was still up and using the internet in the early hours of may. Sixteen two thousand and eight he heard a noise and went to investigate. First, he went to hemorrhage his quarters and was surprised to find them empty.
While there he heard another noise and realized. I was coming from areas she's room rush, grabbed a golf club from the bad weather was stored and ran to he's doin. His bedroom finding areas she and her mirage in bed together, russia lashed out He hit him raj in the head with a golf club as he went to deal a second blow, hemorrhage moved to avoid it waiting the club to hit a regime instead. Meanwhile, New poor was welcomed by all the commotion that was going on just seven fade away. The safety. I believed it was impossible for her to miss when her bed was one room away and less than eight fate from irish chaise. She went to her daughters, room and saw the two victims lying near death with severe headings These new poor and rage Asher grade to cover up their crime there,
rattan hemorrhage in a bedsheet and dragged him to the terrace where they cut his throat before concealing him with the cooler panel, the plan was to dispose of him. Properly later to ensure the crimes looked identical, they dang cut their daughters throat before cleaning her body to hide any sign of sexual activity. they also claimed haemorrhages blood from the floor and disposed of any bloody clothing, as well as the scalpel or similar weapon used to cut the victims throat afterwards, rush sat in the living room and drank some whisky to calm down a k witness for the process, She was body man. The maid who had just started working for the town was at the time of the murders. She was the first person to arrive at the same and said that when she I tried to open the first of three doors to the apartment it hadn't barged.
The city, I argued that the tax laws must have alleged the door from the inside. This proved that day, with the killers as an intruder, wouldn't have been able to do such a thing and still flayed. The apartment body had ass to newport authority on the case to her, so she gonna let herself in the save ii I suspected while body waited below the balcony new poor rent, the whole way and unlatched the first door, so body could open it after she threw down the case body returned to the first door. This time had opened when she pressed her hand against it. Other residents to say be, I called on was the lodge palmprint made with haemorrhages blood on a terrorist war, and this made bloody fingerprints on the whisky bottle. They said that rush tell why had been wearing surgical gloves while carrying out the crime which,
after larger than usual handprint and made collecting fingerprints impossible The defence set about trying to refute all of these points, Cross examining body montel about attempting to open the door to the town was apartment. She told them. Stating whatever has been explained to me. They took is to mean that she had been encouraged by the save ii are innocent, Subsequent interview with a documentary film crew body said she hadn't pushed the outer door until after she had the case, which was contrary to her statement in court. The town was driver also testified tat. The outer door had a habit of sticking. If someone John press that lightly and might appear to be latched, but you had to hard to open it up.
being charged, the tell was had requested that more evidence from the crime same they submitted for dna touch testing, including the bloody palmprint left on the terrace. The gulf club believed to be the murder weapon and the whisky bottle found in the living room, these requests were denied The defence still try to argue against the whisky bottle, evidence pointing out that it didn't make sense for regime to leave it out. If he was the killer, he could have simply stashed it in the bar, which was concealed inside a cabinet, a killer outside the family was more likely to leave it out, as they wouldn't know where the sacred by was As for the saviours claim that the town was must have heard the crime taking place being the middle of summer and no The air conditioners were running in both bedrooms.
A sound simulation test ordered by the city. I had even found that it was possible to tell laws might not have heard what was happening. One room over experts also refuted the assertion that the victims, neck words, had been made using a lot scalpel lock weapon with surgical precision due to them large size of the injuries, it seemed that a bigger blunted weapon was used. I got an ecologist, gave evidence that disputed that of the doktor who had performed aerospace, autopsy The amended report claimed that irish chaise vagina had been so dilated that he could see her cervix they're. Gonna colleges testified that this was not possible unless force had been used after rigour, modest set in such force would resulting noticeable injuries which were absent from our shea's body.
none of haemorrhages blood or dna, had been found in Arusha s room. Notion that the tell was had somehow identified, which blood was he's and then succeeded in waning it all up, while leaving era she's on touched, was labeled absurd, defence argued that hemorrhage had been killed on the terrace originally agreed. The blood on this. In case leading up there haven't come from, the town was dragging he's body bought from She's mattress some acquaintances of the tower who had been given police permission to clean the apartment initially took it up there to dispose of it when they found the terrorists door locked. They left the mattress on our neighbours terrorists instead. The defence had an alternative suspect in mind when
They had gained access to the prosecutions evidence during preparations for the trial. They discover If the forensics report dated november six, two thousand and eight related to what em belonging to the town was former employ a krishna todd awry. The original say be: I team had collected the items while investigating krishna and two of his acquaintances for the crime. One of the items was the to create knife with blood from an unidentified animal on it that was a purple pillow k stained with several spots of blood. According to the report, Dan, Testing revealed the blood belonged to him, raj ban jadi, the defence couldn't believe if that this evidence had somehow they nova looked for five years they presented at during their tail was attempt to appeal that charges
say. I said it was simply a typographical error. The pillow case with blood. don't I had actually being recovered from haemorrhages room, but it had been made. Labelled as belonging to krishna, with further evidence to support one claim or the other. The defence could not use the polite case. Evidence at trial. In late november, two thousand and thirteen six months after the trial began, the judge was ready. To deliver a verdict. I that it had been proved beyond reasonable doubt that russian newport and newport had murdered, arusha and ham raj. He also found them de of destroying evidence to cover up the crime russian ash and new poor burst into tears upon hearing the verdict.
The say be: I had asked that day were saved the death penalty. The judge sentence them to live in prison. the tell was continued to maintain their innocence, as did their supporters defenders of the couple pointed that the murder weapon was never established and there was no forensic evidence tying the couple to the crime. So how could they being convicted beyond the reasonable doubt. Less debbie roque San who wrote a book about the case. Titled irish shea accused the judge of deciding on their verdict before the defence had finished, presenting their case. The tell was found purpose in prison by setting up a dental clinic there with permission of the authorities. They traded their fellow inmates while waiting for their first appeal to be heard by the ala. Her bad high court, the highest court,
in a state of utter pradesh, almost four years, After they were incarcerated, the high court found that evidence presented by the say be. I was not sufficient to find them. Guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in aceh the two hundred and seventy three page report. They said this. Maybe I had miserably failed to find evidence to support their theory of the crime. raj newport tell, while both acquitted of all charges and allowed to return home. Some were angered by this decision, This say be. I announced their intention to challenge the ruling of the supreme court, the supreme court, a great to hear the appeal, but there have been no further update. And the case remains unsolved, as I've made twenty twenty three.
In the nepalese village, where hemorrhage band johnny was from many of his family and friends are certain that the tat was what guilty hem his wife concludes, Ben job, a has spoken publicly of her conviction. That regime tell why killed her husband. Who else would do this? She asked in a two thousand seventeen documentary series tide, would every beyond a reasonable doubt, concord believed the initial theory of the case that raj ash had been having an affair and killed a roget after she found out. Hemorrhage had witnessed the murder so rash, killed him too. According to current cooler, hemorrhage had cared for irish shale. She was his own daughter, others had known him, raj also vouched for he's kind and loyal character.
a woman who employed hemorrhage for fifteen years prior to him joining their tell why household said he had Ways bain protective of her children to the point of intervening. If shale husband where angry with them come cool. I told the filmmakers how difficult her life was without him raj. He had move to india to find work and provide for his family, but he made sure to return once or twice a year. He would stay for about a month before going back to india. Almost a decade after his death come cooler, still missed him constantly and found it hard to believe he was gone to make matters worse. It felt like her husband was the forgotten victim of his own murder quite there's an emptiness in everything how I put it in words. They tell why has money so
Everyone only talks about his daughter's murder. We are poor so who stand up for us. others say that tell was as victims of corrupt policing agencies. A flawed justice is and a media circus journal. Stand cousin of new poor sri parada road and nickel about the case for toronto, star she'd, explained that data shoe to the sea, be. I was independent of the state police who botched the first investigation, but it doubt the c b officers who charged the tell was what colleagues of the noise police shoes of class and social mores may have contributed to the tower, was prosecution. The couple the middle class professionals who spoke english and where university educated die, had fairly liberal values and a real
friendship with their daughter that was more open and daisy going than many indians were accustomed to irish she was permitted to talk to boys, go out with friends and could be cheeky with her parents, most of the police officers and say be. I investigators responsible for the case came from more conservative backgrounds element Of the tell was lives which were quite normal for middle class. Indian families appeared foreign and travelling to them there Cosmopolitan lifestyle led to allegations that the couple had affairs and engaged in swinging. the fact that russia and new poor didn't cry and public after their daughters, murder, also saint suspicious, when confronted by this, They argue that no one saw how much they cried every day in the privacy of their home.
When journalists heavy ropes and visited the tat was at their home, they showed him keepsakes thy head of their daughter.
