THE family of a private investigator brutally axed to death in Sydenham are furious a report on the reasons for his collapsed murder trial is yet to be published.The murder of Daniel Morgan in 1987, who ran the company Southern Investigations with partner Jonathan Rees, has seen five failed murder investigations, with the last, in March 2011, leading to admissions of police corruption by Scotland Yard.His brother Alastair Morgan, angry at the police failures, has demanded a judicial inquiry but has been told it cannot be considered until a report by the Metropolitan Police on the reasons behind the collapse has been completed.Due at the end of January, this report has yet to be published. Mr Morgan, 63, said: “We have completely lost faith in the police. We want a judicial inquiry so we can be shown all the material and see for ourselves what they know about Daniel’s murder.The delay is typical, you get the feeling the whole thing is a deliberate attempt to prolong things but we will keep up the pressure until we know the truth.” A meeting with Home Secretary Theresa May in December saw her state no decision on an inquiry would be made until the report was produced.Mr Morgan said: “When they announced the report at first I didn’t care – I know why the trial collapsed, police cock-ups in disclosure, mishandling of evidence and the use of super-grasses.
