MUM'S INQUIRY PLEA FOR SON MURDERED IN AXE ATTACK.

THE mother of a murdered Midland detective has demanded a public inquiry into the death of her son, who was killed just before heexposedaweb of police corruption.

Private investigator Daniel Morgan was found with an axe in his skull outside a London pub 16 years ago.

His murder has the subject of four separate investigations by detectives and has resulted in the arrest of a police officer -but his killer has still not been found. Now his family has been told that investigations into the death have been halted because of insufficient evidence.

Mr Morgan's mum Isobel Hulsmann, of Hay-on-Wye, Herefordshire, said: 'It's clear the original inquiry was incompetent beyond belief. The only possible solution to this sordid mess is for the Home Secretary to grant an independent public inquiry examining the police investigations.'
