Daniel Morgan Murder: the Most Investigated Murder in British History..

Daniel Morgan (July 6, 1736July 6, 1802) was an American pioneer, soldier, and US Representative from Virginia.. One of the most gifted battlefield tacticians of the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), he later commanded troops during the suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion Whiskey was by far the most popular distilled beverage in late 18th-century America, so the excise became known as the "whiskey tax"..Taxes were politically unpopular, and Hamilton believed that the whiskey excise was a luxury tax and would be the least objectionable tax that the government could levy.. In this, he had the support of some social reformers, who hoped that a "sin tax" would raise public awareness about the harmful effects of alcohol.. Farmers of the western frontier were accustomed to distilling their surplus rye, barley, wheat, corn, or fermented grain mixtures into whiskey..The popular referendum was held on September 11 and also produced mixed results..Morgan and his actions served as one of the key sources of Benjamin Martin in The Patriot, a motion picture released in 2000 - Bullets & Bombs can siriusly damage your wallet - The Golden Lion is an Italian fairy tale collected by Laura Gonzenbach in Sicilianische Märchen..

On 10 March 1987 after having a drink with Jonathan Rees, his partner in Southern Investigations, at the Golden Lion pub in Sydenham Morgan was found dead in the pub car park next to his car, with an axe wound to the back of his head, having been attacked from behind his back...Although a watch had been stolen his wallet had been left and a large sum of money was still in his jacket pocket.. The pocket of his trousers had been torn open and notes he had earlier been seen writing were missing..Subsequently a match to the DNA sample found on Morgan's trouser pocket was allegedly made..Morgan was alleged to have been investigating drug-related police corruption in south London before his death..Detective Sergeant Sid Fillery, stationed at Catford police station, was assigned to the case but did not reveal to superiors that he had been working unofficially for Southern Investigations..At the inquest into Morgan's death in April 1988 it was alleged that Jonathan Rees, who had had disagreements with Morgan, told Kevin Lennon, an accountant at Southern Investigations, that police officers at Catford police station who were friends of his, were either going to murder Danny Morgan or would arrange it and Sid Fillery would replace Morgan as Rees's partner..In the twenty years following Morgan's death 5 police inquiries were conducted..After an inquiry by Hampshire police in 1988, Jonathan Rees and another man were charged with the murder but charges were dropped because of a lack of evidence - Morgan is a Celtic given name traditionally used in Wales, Brittany & Scotland..It is traditionally a male name, though also increasingly used for girls too..The male name is a descendant of Old Welsh Morcant, possibly derived from mor (meaning "sea") and cant (meaning "circle"), with the meaning "sea chief" or "sea defender"..

Detective Superintendent David Cook was appointed to head an inquiry to review the evidence..Because of concerns over connections between Masonic Lodge members and the murder, the 36 police officers appointed to the inquiry team were required to state that they had never been Freemasons..Cook described the murder as "one of the worst-kept secrets in south-east London", claiming that "a whole cabal of people" knew the identity of at least some of those involved...He identified the main suspects as "white Anglo-Saxons"..Daniel Morgan's brother Alastair who had been critical of police inaction and incompetence expressed confidence in Cook..The Metropolitan Police's senior homicide officer, Detective Chief Superintendent Hamish Campbell, apologised to the family, acknowledging the impact on the case of police corruption in the past..For much of the family's 24-year-long campaign for justice, they had encountered "stubborn obstruction and worse at the highest levels of the Metropolitan Police", an impotent police complaints system and "inertia or worse" on the part of successive governments..After the collapse of the Old Bailey trial in March 2011 it was revealed that Jonathan Rees had earned £150,000 a year from the News of the World for supplying illegally obtained information about people in the public eye..After Rees completed his prison sentence for perverting the course of justice, he had been hired again by the News of the World, at the time edited by Andy Coulson..In May 2013, the Home Office announced it was to hold an independent inquiry into Morgan's death..Home Secretary Theresa May acknowledged that there was "no likelihood of any successful prosecutions being brought in the foreseeable future" but said that the independent panel would "shine a light" on the circumstances of his murder and the handling of the case..
