Samuel Lakey

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:20 pm on 20 October 2015

It's taken more than eight decades, but today, the remains of Samuel Lakey have finally been put to rest at Huntly Cemetery. Samuel and his wife Christobel were murdered by their neighbour in the 1930's. And up until now, his remains have been stored in a back-room police museum collection. Rowan Carroll is the director fo the New Zealand Police Museum. And she's been at the service at Huntly Cemetery this morning.
