13th Anniversary

In one weeks time it will be my mums 13th anniversary since she was murdered, Already i'm wishing this month could just dissapear. Thoughts running through my head all day and night and it just seem to get worser each time it gets closer to the day, To be honest it would be easier if i could block this month or even week from my mind but i can't.
I really wish that this post could have been that the murderer had been caught and charge with my mums murder, or even just a little bit of good news but unfortunetly i don't have any.
I really would like to say thank you for all the message's and posts im still receiving via the website and facebook they really do help when times seem hard.

Also please to say the website has received a total of over 1,022,600 hits from starting the website to 31st july 2010 that's alot of views and im sure the number would have been even greater if it wasnt for the disruption of the website going down earlier on in the campaign when the story hit the headlines.

Unfortunetly i have yet been able to completely fix the website counter so that may not be exact though ill try update it when ever i can.

Hopefully before this time next year i'll be able to post that someone has been charged with my mums murder.... Fingers Crossed x

2 Years Later

2 years now since starting the campaign, still nobody has been arrested but i have recently been told by the police officer investigatin the case 'We are still doing a few enquiries at present but this is mainly elimination of DNA and personally I do not expect this to lead to any new suspects.'

But who knows where it may lead as always i will continue to keep the website alive and appear in futher news paper articles ect when they come along until one day hopefully someone will be caught :D Fingers crossed.

Documentary

Just to let you all know on Friday 5th March 2010 at 7:30PM on Channel 4 the case about my mum will be featured in a documentary about disability hate crime the documentary is called 'Sticks&Stones' if you have time to watch it that would be great.
The documentary is about disabled people who are bullied/abused about there condition by other people, my mums case is featured in the documentary as before she was murdered she herself although she was loved my many people received allot of verbal aswel as psyical abuse by people in the area.
In the documentary Adults with disabilities speak out about their experiences of hate crime and question a society that continues to do nothing to protect them. Public attention was drawn to the issue of disability hate crime after the tragedy of Fiona Pilkington, a mother who killed herself and her disabled daughter in October 2007, after a decade... See more of abuse from local teenagers and no help from the authorities. It was said that the Pilkington case had provided a watershed moment to move disability hate crime up the public agenda, yet more often than not the voices of those who are persecuted because of their disability go unheard.
