In one of our posts of last year about the hoax played on the Gaul families with the continued help of the police authorities and of their informants, we expressed doubt that the matter of the human remains found in Russia was genuine and relevant to the Gaul tragedy. We understood that that was a pretext for keeping a tab on the families at a time when damning proof about the cover up was about to emerge. By keeping in touch with the families the police in Hull probably wanted to make sure that none of them got access to that proof.
A year after that Russian story - as we anticipated - nothing happened.
At the time we felt sorry for those whom the evidence incriminates; today, this is no longer the case.
