The State Coroner Michael Barnes has called for the removal of Detective Chief Inspector Pam Young from the investigation into the murder of Scott Johnson, whose naked body was found on the base of a cliff at Manly in 1988....

 

...Sydney MP Alex Greenwich has written to police Comissioner Andrew Scipione calling for Young to be replaced.

Greenwich told GNN he had been contacted by numerous constituents who had expressed concerns regarding Young's impartiality and ability to investigate the case.

In Greenwich's letter he said there was serious community concern that Young was dismissive of historic homophobic treatment.
