  • "What makes the Limetown tragedy unique, what makes it worth a continuing discussion, in spite of the collective moving on, is the complete lack of context. In the 10 years since, no one group or individual has taken responsibility. No explanations have been uncovered, or given with any credibility and, most tragically, no survivors have been found."

  • This is Lia Haddock. The clip you just heard is a fair one. Since the death of Max, I have grappled with the central question of if I should continue. To be completely honest, I was very close to saying "No" and walking away. To say the least, this has taken a toll on me, my family, and everyone with whom I have spoken. But then I received a phone call from the one person who could convince me otherwise, Max Finlayson's ex-wife Deirdre Wells. She wants to tell her story ... And I owe her that. You'll hear our conversation on Monday.
