Aisling Murphy Trail

Just finished listen to the last of the Aisling Murphy trail, had to turn off the crimeworld because couldn’t stand listen to them still dancing around the motivation to why she was killed. I also don’t know how they thought he was quiet and calm and here it says he was smirking. Anyway thought the realness of your chat was needed. I think they saying Paul was struggling to find about Aisling was she was the girl next door and this is why Ireland is so angry.
