Bill Comeans Twitter Account Gives Voice To Teen Murdered 34 Years Ago

Posted: Updated:

And so begins one of the more intriguing, worthy and most macabre of Twitter accounts.

Bill Comeans was murdered aged just 14-years-old in 1980 and - as he appears to tell us here - those responsible for his death have yet to be found.

The account is run by his sister, Kathleen, who was eight at the time of the murder.

The effect is undoubtedly effective but also mildly disturbing, the first-person nature of Twitter giving a voice to a dead person.

For a detailed description of the murder case, see the Daily Dot's round-up here...

The tactic would appear to be working - it has received media coverage around the world.

The latest development is a new detective is starting on the case to check the status of DNA tests.
