An independent inquiry into the murder of a father-of-two has revealed a series of breakdowns in communication between the agencies caring for his killer, a psychiatric patient, according to the Northern Echo (p1).
The report into the death of Peter McNamee at the hands of Jonathan Crisp concluded no individual or single agency was to blame. But social services, hospitals, child protection services and GPs did not exchange information, so noone had the full picture the killer.
Crisp murdered Peter McNamee in June 1997.
The compilers of the report, appointed by Tees Health Authority, said they wanted to see a region-wide service set up to help people diagnosed with personality disorders.
