I think this story is worth following.
He used a passport in his birth name of Phillip John Traynor, and was not stopped at the border as his conviction was under his Smith alias. (I am wondering if that is he mother’s maiden name?)
From what I have seen in the media so far this is a story about a father who lost contact with his son in his infant years.
The child latter went wayward and tried to make contact with his father in his teenage years, which didn’t work out, and he went on to a life of crime which included murder.
The Father wants him locked up for life because he is evil.
There is plenty of comment going on around the case which we can link to in comments.
It will be interesting to see what comes out of this case.
