Murder In Mauritius podcast to expose ‘big circus act’December 3, 2019
The family of Michaela McAreavey an Irish woman murdered on her honeymoon in Mauritius have launched a podcast.
They say it will help listeners understand the “circus act” trial that acquitted the suspects, two hotel workers cleared for the killing of the 27-year-old.
She was found strangled and half-submerged in the bath of the honeymoon suite on January 10, 2011.
Mr John McAreavey has repeatedly criticised the police investigation that led to the high-profile court case.
He previously offered a £43,000 reward to help catch whoever killed his wife, said that public interest in the trial turned it into a “big circus act”.
He said he still had “faith in the jury” to convict the men, with more than 50 witnesses have given evidence, and said the verdict left him feeling betrayed by the Mauritian justice system.
“The evidence is just so strong. And that is why we really wanted to talk about the depth of the evidence in the podcast.”
