Jean McConville murder an evil, cowardly deed

NO murder in the history of the Troubles can evoke more emotion than the murder of Jean McConville in 1972. That her body was also 'disappeared' in order that her family suffer more, is even more sickening.

That 10 children were left without a mother didn't seem to matter. Their father had already died and so they became orphans.

The murder of Jean McConville reveals a lot about egomaniacal cowards, consumed with a perceived power over those who had no guns.

Such are the origins of evil.
