FOR 15 years Tracey McCafferty has dealt with the heartbreak of losing a son.
She didn’t get the chance to prepare for Joe’s death, for her son was just seven-years-old when he was murdered.
Petrol was poured through the letterbox of the Marsh house of Joe’s aunt Debbie and it was set alight.
The little boy, who should have had a lifetime of fun ahead of him, was killed in the devastating arson attack.
Joe’s killer has never been caught.
And while life had to carry on for Tracey and her other children, she can never forget what happened to Joe.
She cannot put it in the past and she cannot forget because Joe’s killer remains at large.
Someone lives a lie everyday, someone carries on with their life in the knowledge they took Joe’s and deeply changed his family’s forever.
Someone, somewhere may even know who carried out the actions which killed Joe.
It is time the person responsible for Joe’s death was brought to justice, but it needs someone to tell the police who did it.
And after 15 years it is time that someone searched their conscience and asked themselves why they are hiding the secrets of a murderer.
