Wishart: Watson murdered with accomplice

Ian Wishart will be dishing out to media through the day on his book launch and claims about who murdered Ben Smart and Olivia Hope.

He started the day with Breakfast:

Next, it’s the double murder case that’s gripped NZ for more than 18 years. Journalist Ian Wishart is in studio next with his revelations

“Scott Watson had an accomplice in murdering Olivia Hope and Bed Smart”-Ian Wishart

“It wasn’t until I found the police file and went through the court statements that I realised we’d missed something really big”.

“I’ve always been a sceptic regarding jail house witnesses”.

“He’s hanged himself by his own hand.”

“We have never had the allegation previously that there was an accomplice… yet the evidence clearly proves it”.

Scott Watson’s father Chris Watson:

“A number of people have had that police disclosure and none have come up witha theory like that”.

“After all this time it would be hard to sort of pin the boat down”.

“I think he’ll laugh about that”-Chris Watson on how Scott Watson will react to Ian Wishart’s book.

“This accomplice thing is a dollar each way… it’s just strange”.

The onus will be on Wishart to provide a compelling argument today.

Gerald Smart (Olivia’s father) has already seen Wishart’s book and is reported as saying there is no ‘smoking gun’ in it.
