You'll die in jail

A report into the police handling of the Stefan case has been kept secret for more than 14 years. An application by the Mirror for the file to be released under the Freedom of Information Act was declined earlier this year. Lancashire Police said the public's best interest was best-served by "nondisclosure".

In 1994 DCI Dick Holland, CS Dibb and forensic scientist Ronald Outteridge were accused of destroying evidence and withholding statements from the defence, proving the whereabouts of Stefan on the day of the murder. Dibb died. Holland and Outteridge never faced trial after it was ruled it would be an "abuse of process."
