By July 1979, Commander Cass had sent his first report to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Amongst other things, he had concluded that the killer must have been from Unit 1/1 of the Special Patrol Group: “from enquiries it is now obvious at the officers concerned were Special Patrol Group and there is no credible evidence that any other officers were actually at the scene” (page 63).

His report remained unpublished, although there were already rumours as to what he had discovered.

A number of local Community Relations Council began to lobby the CRE to demand that the report was published in full.
