‘We don’t have enough evidence in Cahillane case’
THERE is not sufficient evidence to bring anyone to justice for the James Cahillane murder according to Supt Myers. But gardaí are not letting up in their investigation.
Three files have been sent to the DPP seeking direction but none have resulted in a prosecution.
James Cahillane’s body was found in his burnt-out house around 2.05am on April 19, 2012. It was at first thought to be a death due to an accidental fire but was later reclassified as murder. “We don’t have sufficient evidence to bring someone before the court on it. I have met the family on two, if not three times. I hope they understand where we are coming from. Everyone is presumed innocent in this country until they are found guilty.
“The investigation is continuing and we did peer-topeer review with a senior detective officer in Limerick to overview the case to see if anything was missed.
“That investigation is open and I have assured the family and the family will be kept up to date. The challenge is to bring it to a successful conclusion.”
