Fifteen years to this day, Martin O' Hagan - journalist and father - was shot dead in the street. The passage of time hasn't dimmed the shock, and talk of it is still tinged with a surreal feeling that it actually happened. Sadly, it did.

Marty's face and cheeky grin stares down on our office every day. We wouldn't have it any other way, and we still talk about him.

For the record, Drew King and his brother Robin decided to take the law into their own hands. I don't suppose his killers will ever see the inside of a prison cell for what they have done. People say their sentence is living with their conscience, but that kind of trash doesn't have a conscience.
