Kerry Babies: Retired Garda Accepts Joanne Hayes Wasn’t Mother To ‘Baby John’

A retired detective who was part of the 1984 investigation into the murder of ‘Kerry Babies’ has said he now accepts, in light of DNA evidence, that Joanne Hayes was not Baby John’s mother.

Erry O’Carroll, who was one of two detectives to personally question Ms. Hayes who propagated the discredited theory that she was the mother of both babies, said: “The DNA, I must accept, is finite evidence.”
