The Crime Scene ( I should say alleged Crime Scene) of the Murder of Fr Niall Molloy was tampered with after the first Garda, Sgt Kevin Ford, arrived on the scene.
In a statement he made to the Serious Crime Review Team, Sgt. Kevin Ford ( retired ) said the following.
“ I have viewed the photographs and can say this is how I found the scene with one difference. I have a recollection that of the body being in a different position”
Someone moved the position of Fr Niall’s body between the time Sgt. Ford arrived and sealed off the scene and the time the forensic team arrived from Dublin to take photographs of the body.
“Fr. Deignan was elderly man. He arrived first and said let’s move the body” – Statement from a family witness
SCRT – The Serious Crime Review Team in there final report ( 2013 ) state that ” The members involved in this current examination of issues were required to rely on the typed investigation file that was submitted to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. The original file, job books and exhibits have not been located to date”
