Four children killed in a firebombing attack
September 17, 2018 | Brainwave Science
Terrifying accident, December 11, 2017, four children were killed in a petrol bomb attack as they slept in their home. Petrol bombs were tossed inside the home at around 5am, with the second device ‘exploding’ near the stairs.
This blocked the only exit to the ground floor and trapped the victims upstairs as flames engulfed the house
Today, on Friday, September 14th, 2018 after nine months they were carried into their funeral in age order by heartbroken family members and friends.
In this horrific situation their mother, Michelle Pearson,was rescued from the property along with youngest daughter Lia – but the little girl tragically died in hospital two days after the incident.
The funeral is taking place four months after two men were jailed for life for the children’s murders.
Zak Bolland, 23, was handed four life terms and told he must serve at least 40 years behind bars by a judge at Manchester Crown Court in May.
David Worrall, 26, was ordered to serve a minimum term of 37 years in prison.
Bolland was also convicted of three counts of attempted murder relating to Michelle, her son Kyle Pearson, 17, and his pal, Bobby Harris. However, Worrall was found not guilty of three counts of attempted murder.
A third defendant, Courtney Brierley, 20, was found not guilty of murdering the children, but convicted of the alternative of manslaughter in each case.
The court had heard Bolland had been involved in a “petty” feud with Kyle.
Quite often in cases of arson and burglary the evidence is not always available. If available, it is not a conclusive evidence to convince jury. Sources of evidence can include anything from the observations of witnesses to the examination and analysis of physical objects. It can even include the spatial relationships between people, places, and objects within the timeline of events. From the various forms of evidence, the court can draw inferences and reach conclusions to determine if a charge has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Sometimes law enforcement agencies are handicapped by minimal evidence as criminals are smart enough to ensure no DNA/fingerprints are available at the crime scene. Additionally they can bear polygraph/lie-detector and present false alibi before investigators and court to evade justice.
What if there was a technology out there that has been designed to specifically overcome this shortcoming faced by investigators? Evidence problem, no problem! In any case (which is almost 85% of all civil and criminal investigations) where investigation has been carried out iCognative by Brainwave Science can be utilized. Apart from high applicability and accuracy rates always above 99%, this high-tech crime fighting technology has been based in proven science that has been upheld by scientific community for over 2 decades. Easy to operate any investigator can learn this cost-effective iCognative technology in a matter of days.
iCognative supports law enforcement authorities determine if a suspect’s memory contains specific knowledge of any fact or situation, such as the details of the previous petrol bomb attacks, biological bomb-making knowledge, or the inner workings of a terrorist organization.
In our case, iCognative can be of significant aid in gaining valuable intelligence. To support further evidence collection in this case iCognative technology can be loaded with case related investigation details including: details of petrol bomb attack on the house of Michelle Pearson; time and location of four kids murdered by arson,; knowledge about plan to attack this house; etc. along with witness and expert testimonies can help investigators finally provide justice to cases that otherwise go cold due to lack of sufficient evidence to convince juries. Non-invasive, cost-effective and human rights compliant iCognative technology immediately delivers over 99% accurate results to distinguish between perpetrators, co-conspirators and innocents. Highly applicable and objective iCognative technology leads the way for the future of all investigations. Brainwave Science has successfully charted out a path that has led to creation of iCognative as not a part of security and investigations vertical but has produced a new vertical in itself. It is only a matter of time before each and every law enforcement agency embraces this cutting-edge, avant-garde tool in their arsenal and apprehends all perpetrators of such heinous acts against innocent kids.
