Cork weirdo/sicko thread


#2362

bullet points please


#2363

He may not be successful overall - but seeing as use of data breached 2014 EU law the court had to be seen to uphold it but he is still going to rot for life.


#2364

This wasn’t the appeal of his murder conviction. That is pending. Regardless of the outcome today, I’d be amazed if his murder conviction is quashed.


#2365

the data was held too long


#2366

I think the whole case is shady. He may well be guilty, but there is zero hard evidence. None.


#2367

Yeah, no murder weapon, no DNA linking him to murder. All circumstantial evidence.

That he was proven to be a creep/UUCOAM from his texts to the victim and his phone placed him in the area she was last seen alive was enough to convict him.

If the phone stuff is to be disregarded in any possible retrial the rest of the case looks flimsy enough, as far as I can see.


#2368

It was the mobile phone data that put Joe O’Reilly away too. Not an ounce of physical evidence linking him to that murder either.


#2369

Is Joe O’Reliiy from Cork?


#2370

No, but he is also a weirdo.


#2371

Ah shtap


#2372

And that he had sent her thousands of messages outlining how he fantasized about murdering her in the exact way she died


#2373

Yeah, but as I said there is no hard evidence linking him to the murder. Just a load of texts threatening stuff.

No witness, no confession, no DNA linking him to a crime scene or weapon, nothing. Guilty as sin IMO but it’s all circumstantial.


#2374

He was only coddin I’d say.
The jury had it in for Carkies


#2375

It’s not all phone stuff that could possibly be discounted. It’s just the metadata stuff relating to phone locations, call times etc. The text messages would still be admisable I’d say.


#2376

in what context are phone locations and call times metadata?

a phone location is presumably coordinates - which is data
a call time is date/time - which is data.

metadata describes information about data


#2377

What does metadata of an email contain?


#2378

data about the email.


#2379

Yes, the same with mobile phone metadata, it’s data about the call. I don’t get your point.


#2380

why is it not admissable?


#2381

EU law
