There was this guy who posted in here recently called Splinter. I would just like to say that I have spoken with this man on the phone for a couple of days and he has moved me beyond all imagination, I just feel compelled to tell you a little about his story because, sadly, he his committing suicide this weekend. I can’t let that happen without printing why he is doing that, it might give people another perspective on why people feel it is their only answer.Â
His wife (who was 7 months pregnant) was murdered, the murderer was never caught, despite there being some lines of investigations that he suspected were not followed up. He involved himself in the investigations much to the annoyance of the police, and for fear of going into all the details which is a very long story; he ended up having to go to court to get an order to obtain the police records. He had to study the law night and day (became and insomniac) and posted blogs about it in the hope that some kind hearted lawyer would assist him once he realised that not only had the police lied to him on countless occasions, but they had lost the file and therefore had nothing further to go on (even though there were 2 suspects).Â
He never got justice for himself or his wife and child. But it did encourage him to help others in the same situation as by now he had studied the law and how police and court investigations go. He set up a online charity and pestered the hell out of lawyers for assistance (he is even now established at the law society and the legal services commission). He ended up working closely with a PI company in most of the cases and then eventually became a PI himself. A lot of the cases they took on were about missing children, they worked alongside another PI company that had involvement with the police. Splinter was disturbed by the sheer volume of missing children cases that went unheard, he couldn’t understand why some cases (a minor few) made the media and Â so many more, even more disturbing ones, didn’t.Â
He has worked this way for 8 years now and also has connections with the US in the same line of work. He has been made aware of the largest pedophile ring in the UK and US and has studied how children are taken overseas from these two countries. He has even gone as far as to pose as a pedophile himself (with others) and physically trap and bring in these men to the authorities, only for them to be set free on technicalities by the police, and not even kept an eye on. He constantly has death threats from these men. It has happened over and over again and is a losing battle. He doesn’t know quite why it’s the way it is, he has theories but he prefers to have fact rather than fiction.
However, he nows first hand just how vile this world in which we live is, he says he has given his all to trying to change things and he is becoming ill, both mentally and physically. He knows that he cannot erase the images and the knowledge that he has now form his mind and he has thought long and hard that if he continues to live knowing where he is and what is happenening, that he is accepting this evil as part of the human way of life – he believes that is wrong and it is NOT the human way of life, and so he can only live either fighting this beast (which he has failed to do) or killing himself as a sort of protest that he refuses to live in this world, so closely alongside evil. He feels trapped by the human body he is in which he has used to it’s full extent to do good and which is already breaking down on him. He wants rid of it.
I never met him but I will miss him. He has moved me further than anyone else could possibly have done. He is a wonderful man. He is an inspiration to humankind.
One thing that he said that has stuck with me too and that I would like to put out on here in case anyone feels the same but hasn’t yet thought of (I know I hadn’t), is that he is donating his organs and any other part of his body when he dies. He Â feels strongly about organ donation as he has first hand experience of people who are waiting on those organs, and seen as suicide is the dismissal of the human life, the human body (so to speak) then it should really be no biggie to you to donate it to others. Please think about that, you can register online.
Anyway, just wanted to tell his story here, not entirely sure why except that I have been moved so deeply by it. If anyone is interested in reading his post on here, here is it; Â
It might be a little difficult for most to read and it is not everyone’s opinion so sorry if you get offended by the post.
