Comment on Town council grapples with Falconio poster: Author hits out at Mayor Ryan by Barry Davis.

Mr Noble made the comment: “It seems they already know where he is” referring to the Falconios knowing where Peter is. Surely a comment as audacious as that must be based on some fact or evidence? Not so, Mr Noble believes this to be true because the Falconio family failed to answer any of the letters he wrote to them. So according to Mr Noble, no response is a sign of suspicious behaviour. He now claims the Falconio family is hiding a dark secret. Perhaps the Falconios decided not to answer Mr Noble because they thought he was an eccentric or perhaps his letters lacked empathy and respect. I have seen the letters he sent to the Falconio family and whilst they were written with a semi polite tone, they issued an ultimatum. If I received letters such as those I too would ignore them.

Hi Jack, As I said in my last message: “Personally I have no issues with a reward being posted, providing its written in a manner that is respectful to the family concerned, no problem with a book being plugged either.” Jack you may or may not be aware but the reward poster is only a part of the issue. Before the reward was issued Mr Noble sent a stream of appalling letters (5 in total) to the Falconio family. Demanding they provide information and issuing ultimatums. They chose not to reply and this has angered Mr Noble. Now he refers to the Falconios as secretive.
So there is a lot more to this than meets the eye, it not just about a reward poster. For me personally I would like to see Peter found dead or alive, I would also like to see the Falconios treated with respect and empathy.
My agenda is I’m interested in this case and have been for 10+ years. I have created a web site about the case and correspond with a number of people who are also interested in the case. Its a hobby for me, one which I put a lot of time into. Mr Noble and I share opposing views. So that’s the story Jack, there is nothing going on, no agenda and I’m not part of any conspiracy to hide information about Peter.

@ Keith Allan Noble.
Surely you can understand people would be divided and highly critical of the reward poster. Many people believe justice was served when Bradley Murdoch was found guilty and may view the reward as a cheap stunt to promote a book. People who feel Bradley Murdoch is innocent would naturally support the reward. I think Mr Ryan’s comments were quite reasonable and if you put yourself in his position you may understand why. Mr Ryan is the mayor of Alice Springs so he has every right to express his views about matters concerning the town. The posters were offensive to many people (Mr Ryan included) because in their opinion they believe justice was served and the case is closed. Therefore talk about a reward for a person assumed dead would seem bizarre and disrespectful. The posters were disrespectful of the Falconio family by labeling them as secretive. You also listed their address in the UK and Italy without their permission and you plugged your book. So I think under the circumstances Mr Ryan’s comments were justified.
Personally I have no issues with a reward being posted, providing its written in a manner that is respectful to the family concerned, no problem with a book being plugged either.
The Falconio family has not done anything to deserve the derogatory remarks being made about them, they have lost a son and deserve the utmost of respect and empathy. I think you have overstepped the mark and you owe the Falconio family a sincere apology.

As we both know you are member of the ‘FREE Bradley Murdoch facebook group’ and have links to a member of Mr Murdoch’s family, so it’s no surprise that you would come out in defence of Mr Noble’s actions. It’s also no surprise that you would come out and make personalised comments about myself, as you have done on numerous occasions before. You won’t engage me in your [issues], so spare yourself the effort in trying. BTW: I believe my comments were directed towards Mr Crowley.
