Over 95000 people have now signed this petition which only went on line this week.
Marie McCourt wants to stop her daughter's murderer being released on parole as he will not reveal where Helens body is.

Now over 95000 signatures.
Could someone please provide a link to the petition so that the younger members of the site can read the story as they may not be aware of it.

I would like to think that the majority of people who look at the petition and read the story do sign.
Over 95000 signatures for a petition which is only a few days old is fantastic and I hope Marie McCourt gets her wish.

It was confirmed last night that plans for "Helen's Law" will be going ahead.
Killer's who refuse to disclose the whereabouts of victims bodies will be kept in prison longer.
Well done to Marie McCourt who has never given up fighting since her daughter was murdered by Ian Simms.
And thanks to everyone who signed the petition.

Replied: 8th Jul 2019 at 16:39

The Bill had its second reading today and the Peers have passed it.
It now goes to the committee stage.
Better late than never.
