Arrest for murder of high profile officer challenge for media and prosecutors

The media were all over the arrest of Col. Russell Williams for murder and sexual assault. And it became quite clear today that a major challenge for the authorities will be to contain information which might prejudice the trial of Williams. As is usually the case in murder investigations, reporters have information or suspect it, which prosecutors will not want revealed. At his news conference, Det. Insp Nicholas turned away many carefully posed questions. The Belleville Intelligencr noted, "Queries regarding how Williams knew Lloyd and Comeau, how long Lloyd was in her murderer's company before being killed and whether Lloyd's disappearance was an "Internet crime" went unanswered due to the status of the investigation."
