Colette's Killer Released sign now

On 3rd February 2005 Colette Lynch, a 24 year old mother of 3, was brutally stabbed to death in an unprovoked attack, at the hands of her estranged partner Percy Wright.
Colette's mother, Helen Lynch, was also viciously stabbed, but survived the attack.
Wright was convicted of Colette's manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility and is now subject to a hospital order.
This was a tragedy that might have been prevented had agencies responded to Colette's countless calls for help in the weeks, days and hours leading up to her death.
On 6th March 2009 a tribunal will be held which will decide whether Wright is to be released into the community.
Should Wright be released he will pose a threat to the safety of the public.
The failure of public agencies to recognise and respond to this threat in 2005 cost Colette her life.
The public cannot bear the risk of agencies failing to recognise the danger Wright continues to present.

We, the undersigned, urge the Ministry of Justice to intervene in the forthcoming tribunal to ensure that Wright is not released.

    If he was in a normal prison and got 10 years he would nearly be due for release. Remember he was ill. Let him out.

    4 years for taking a life in this manner is a disgrace. Diminished capacity or not he should serve a mininum of 10 years before he is even considered for release. Something is terribly wrong with our Justice System.
