I do not know what makes you think this responsibility falls to Fred.
From what I know of the case Fred had a concrete Alibi which they totally ignored to concentrate on planting fingerprints and we all now know what happens with the fabricating of fingerprints or wrongly attributing marks to people.
In This instance I am more than positive the print did not come from any DVD or Video cover as was evidenced by real experts (Pat & Co) and had they properly concentrated on the evidence they might just have caught the real culprit.
You also appear to be suggesting in your inferences that Fred should not move on with his life or have I read your post incorrectly ?
Most people in Fred's situation end up with PTSD and are incapable of moving on with their lives and for this reason I wish fred all the very best in life and hope sincerely that he can move on but deep down I just know somewhere along the line he will require lots of love and care from his family and perhaps even some counselling but for now please let him enjoy whatever he can after his ordeal.
I fully appreciate there is also a family left totally distressed by the outcome of this case and that the family of Inge are left with lots to cope with and my thoughts and prayers are also with them in their times of sadness and despair.
For them I hope the case is never closed and the police eventually find the real murderer or murderers.
With reference to my previous posting, Wullie’s comment, and just plain common sense: Fred, in particular, will never fully escape the consequences of Inge’s murder. That is until Inge’s murder is solved.
Seven years ago, Inge was the woman that Fred was about to marry.
And yet, to date, apart from the South African Police, the only man that tried to solve her murder was Inge’s father. Now for a moment, try and imagine the direct (short of 5 million GBP) and indirect consequences that Fred (and his family and those contributing towards the war chest defending his innocence) will benefit if Fred was able to solve the murderer of the lady that he loved. And yet, Fred is not pursuing this avenue.
And that begs a serious question. Certainly not enough to accuse Fred of murder. No Wullie, but enough to state that Fred will never be “capable of placing this dreadful and awful chapter of his life behind him and move on”. Inge is not a chapter. Inge will forever be haunting Fred’s life until the awful creature that killed her is exposed. Amongst others, because the man that stated in court that he loved her, seems to be moving on and to be doing nothing.
Impossible, or love needs to be redefined.

the private investigator told the caller to call the police with that information. Whether that happened, we do not know.
