Justice delayed, but justice anyway. What took so long?

Not so long ago, we had a documentary here in Oz about a Canadian documentary film maker, David Ridgen who contacted Moores' brother, Thomas, offering to help solve the case. It was really interesting, although very sad. Apparently, this guy was a suspect way back in 1964, but nothing more was done. They had heard that he was dead, but eventually found him living the life of luxury. His co-accused eventually agreed to give evidence against him.
The boys had been beaten and then tied up and weighed down with motor parts and thrown into the river while still alive. By the time they were found 2 months later, they were decomposed.
Another interesting link about the case/story.
