Martina Devlin: John lost not just his wife that day but a life unlived together
LIFE was never going to be easy for John McAreavey after his bride was murdered on their honeymoon. But yesterday it took a turn for the worse.
For him, everything changed in January 2011, when he found Michaela's dead body, lips blue, in a bath. Nothing could bring her back. But along with the Harte family, he must have felt a responsibility to see justice done in her name.
And so the long journey began. He must have hoped an end was in sight when he returned to Mauritius for the trial. Yesterday told a different tale.
