This is the 19th story in the Murder Squad Detective Joseph Lind serial Collection.
Two murders are committed within a short period of one another. Both quickly result in Suspects being held for several days before being released due to insufficient evidence and an admission by the Police that the evidence collected would indicate that the persons had not committed the crimes. No other suspects for these murders are on the horizon!
However, for whatever reason, the Media has drawn conclusions of guilt based on the persons previous bad records or prior well-documented life-styles. This Media blitz seems to cause adverse reactions from the Public based purely on the slanderous nature of various parts of the Media. TV. Print and Radio. Even when another party is arrested and admits guilt, the various Media Organisations are averse to publicise their incorrect reporting of the two cases. One of the killings has possible links to one of the "Major Players" in the Sydney underworld. The disappearance of this "Colourful Racing Identity" means that one of the murder cases sinks into the mire of a Cold Case. Perhaps never to be satisfactorily resolved.
