The first anniversary of the tragic and brutal killing of British resident Yvonne O'Brien at her home in the popular family resort of Alcudia is just a few weeks away and still no one has been arrested for the sadistic murder. Her brother Philip Graham is still holding out hope that the killer will be caught, but 12 months down the road, he and the rest of the family are feeling frustrated and angry by the apparent lack of headway being made by the police. Graham has been travelling back and forth from the UK to Palma in a bid to keep the momentum in the case going and also to find out for himself the latest developments; he also uses the trips to tidy up and clean his sister's burial site at Palma cemetery. Graham was last in Majorca in April, yesterday he said “I visited police stations in Alcudia and Palma to find the keys for Yvonne's car and although they had notice boards in the police stations, there was no poster relating to Yvonne's murder. To say the island has had very few murders I found this very distressing and questioned my faith in the Spanish Authorities to find the murderer. ” But the Guardia Civil are still working on the case and have by no means given up the hunt for the killer. However a series of events have added to the family's grief. Philip Graham said “the owners of the appartment which Yvonne rented did, without my knowledge at the time, remove all of Yvonne's possessions and said they were soiled and threw them away, this I and my lawyer believe is not true we think they have kept or sold them. This really saddens me because the owners and I agreed that they would notify me when the court lifted the “secreto” seal on the apartment, this they did not do.
