"Dear Detective Superintendent.
(v) Did Humberside inform you that Handois was NOT extensively searched?
(vi) Did Humberside police write a report on its search of Handois Reservoir?
(vii) If so, will it be published? If not why not?
(viii) If Humberside DIDN'T write a report, why not?
(i) By not discovering Mr Lynch in such a small body of water a week after he went missing could/would have caused undue distress and suffering for the Lynch family?
(ii) If Mr Lynch had been found back in December 2015 a more extensive post mortem could have been carried out and the cause of death ascertained?
(iii). Handois Reservoir was apparently a high priority search area?
(iv). Why wasn't Handois re-searched, when further searches of priority areas were carried out in July of this year?
(v) You have (on local "accredited" media) said Handois Reservoir had areas of "hostile terrain." Could you describe what you mean by "hostile terrain?"
(i) If not, why not?
6). You said on BBC Radio Jersey that Operation Panama had no budget. Is it usual police practice for such a large-scale investigation not to have an allocated budget?
On Friday 5th August 2016, an article written by Jack Maguire was published in the Jersey Evening Post. The article stated;
"Handois Reservoir, which acts as a major water treatment works for the Island, is up to 30 metres deep (emphasis added) in places."
Jack Maguire has told Team Voice that he was quoting you when he wrote Handois was "30 metres deep in places." Interestingly he did NOT use quotation marks when allegedly quoting you on this sentence but did on other alleged quotes from you in his article.
7). Did you tell Jack Maguire that Handois Reservoir is "30 metres deep in places?"
(i) If so, why did you tell him that? As we know, at its deepest, Handois is only 4 metres deep.
When challenged by Team Voice regarding your alleged quote (30 metres deep) and the actual depth (4 metres) Mr. Maguire told us it must have been "a slip of the tongue" on your behalf and that you must have meant "30 feet."
(ii) Did you have a "slip of the tongue" and mean to say; "30 feet?"
(iii) If so, would you agree that 30 feet is more than twice the depth of Handois at its deepest and is misleading to the public?
Mr. Maguire has refused to correct this misleading information in his published JEP article telling Team Voice; "it will just confuse matters."
(iv) Did you read the article, and if so, have you asked Mr. Maguire to correct the misleading information? If not why not?
(v) Now that you are aware of the misleading article, will you be asking him to publish a correction, if not why not?
8). You have consistently repeated that the search for Adrian was "thorough and extensive." With hindsight do you believe Handois should have been drained and that; "thorough and extensive" could be perceived as misleading considering it wasn't drained?
(i) Why wasn't it drained?
(ii) How much would it have cost to drain the reservoir in comparison with the £14,000 paid to Humberside Police?
9). The pathologist has reportedly said that the remains of Adrian were consistent with a body that had been immersed in water for "several months." Exactly how many is "several?"
(i) Could Adrian's body have been in the reservoir for less than eight months?
10). Adrian was reportedly in possession of his house keys the night he went missing. Were they recovered with his body?
11) Can you categorically state there was no third party involvement in Adrian's disappearance and untimely death?
We strongly hope that you will answer the questions posed in this e-mail in order to prevent speculation and misreporting of the facts (as in the JEP)?
You will no doubt be aware, through social media, and comments left on "accredited" media sites that there is a fair amount of speculation and little trust/confidence in the way Operation Panama was handled. It is hoped you will answer our questions as full, frankly and honestly, as you can in an effort to curtail speculation/misreporting, and possibly most importantly restore some faith in the island's police force.
We will, in the interest of openness, and transparency, be publishing this e-mail on one of our Blogsites. Please be advised that your answers/reply will be considered for publication also.
We thank you for your time and look forward to you helping us keeping the record straight in this truly tragic turn of events.
Team Voice DO have many other questions to put to the States of Jersey Police/DS Gull concerning Operation Panama and they will be published, or e-mailed to DS Gull, depending on what response we receive from these questions.
RIP Adrian Lynch.
