SUPPORTERS of the family of the late Jason Corbett are asking the public to “keep their candles lighting” as the file into his killing has finally been handed over to the District Attorney in North Carolina.
The Davidson county sheriff’s department has concluded its investigation into the Limerick man’s death and the file has been handed over to the DA.
“Please continue to light your candles to shine the light on justice and truth,” the family’s supporters have urged online.
The file – resulting from a three and a half month investigation – was handed over to the DA’s office on Friday.
“We are satisfied that we have conducted a thorough investigation. The matter is in the hands of the District Attorney for his consideration. I expect there will be some developments within the next two to three weeks,” David Grice, the Davidson county sheriff told the Daily Mail.
Jason, 39, who was from Janesboro in Limerick city, was killed in the home of his second wife, Molly Martens Corbett, on August 2, in North Carolina. Ms Martens, 31, and her father Thomas, 65, a formet FBI agent, are described as ‘persons of interest’ in the case.
The district attorney, Frank Garry, has three options in reviewing this file – to charge immediately, to not charge at all, or to bring the case before a grand jury, which will decide, what charges, if any, should be brought.
As his family in Limerick and his two children now face their first Christmas without Jason, last weekend also marked another poignant moment for the family.
Saturday last, November 21, marked the ninth anniversary of the passing of Jason’s first and beloved wife, Mags Fitzpatrick Corbett, and the mother of his two children, who passed away tragically as a result of an asthma attack.
“Mags was such a beautiful person with the kindest heart and a huge personality. She was truly loved by all that knew her,” read a page set up on Facebook in her memory.
