On saturday april fourteenth nineteen eighty-four. In cahiers sabine in county kerry ireland a local man jack griffin was out for a jog on white strand fees when he saw what looked like a doll wedged between the rocks in a plastic back. It was the body of a newborn baby. Boy he had been strangled. His neck was broken and his tiny body had twenty eight stab wounds. Four of them were in his heart. The baby was about five days old born on or about the seventh of april and had been dead for two days the irish police known as the gardy recalled and they in turn called the undertaker. Tom carnitine when he arrived tom. Cruise into the baby with water from a nearby freshwater stream. He placed him in a small casket and gave him a name john. The gardy suspected the baby's mother specifically an unmarried mother perhaps a teenage girl or woman who was having an affair with a married man in catholic ireland in the early eighties. Abortion was illegal as was divorce condoms were only available with a prescription and birth control. Pills were only prescribed to married women. Both were difficult to obtain any sex education or lack thereof was laid out by the church. Young unmarried woman found herself pregnant. Her parents could send her away to a church. Run home where she would have her baby in secret and then the nuns would take it away for adoption. Irish women few options could use. Evine was a small town in police. Knew that someone with no something. They questioned women all over town even physically examining some of them for signs of a recent pregnancy before long. They found a suspect joanne hayes. Joanne hayes was a twenty five year old single mother who lived roughly forty miles away. In abbey dorney north kerry. She had recently been pregnant but wasn't anymore and no one had seen a baby. Joanne worked as a receptionist at a gym. It was there that she met the father of her children. Jeremiah block jeremiah. Was married with children so joe am lived with her daughter. Her mother her aunt and her siblings on the family farm. She hid the pregnancy and by april. Her relationship with jeremiah was over joanne. Hayes told police that she gave birth alone on april twelfth but her baby died shortly after she then buried the infant on her family's farm. Burials like this were common as babies who were born out of wedlock or weren't baptized. Were not permitted to be buried in consecrated ground. Babies like joannes received home. Burials after this traumatic birth joanne needed medical attention and it was through the hospital that these authorities discovered her as the guardian interrogated joann. She begged and pleaded insisting that if they would just allow her to show them her baby's grave on the farm. She could prove that she was not responsible for baby john. They refused the gardy threatened that she would be jailed for murder and that her daughter would be sent away to an orphanage on may first after a long interrogation joanne. Hayes confessed to the murder of baby. John her siblings mother and aunt also signed statements confessing their involvement all with drew their confessions. But joanne hayes was charged with murder. The next day the remains of joanne's baby were found in a field on the families. Justice test confirmed that. The baby's blood type was oh matching joanne. And the baby's father jeremiah. Lock baby john was blood type eight. Meaning that baby. John could not be joanne and jeremiah's china but the gardy weren't done with joanne yet. They put forward a theory of hetero paternal superfit condition the guardian alleged that in a twenty four hour period joann had had sex with two men of different blood types and wasn't pregnant by both later giving birth to twins each with a different father and a different blood type. The investigation led to a tribunal of inquiry known. As the kerry babies tribunal. It was held in tralee and in nineteen eighty five and lasted eighty. Two days the tribunal was meant to look into the investigation itself but instead it became a trial of joannes moral character for months. Doohan was subjected to humiliating questions. Forced to reveal personal and intimate details about her sex life. Her anatomy her menstrual cycles and her use of contraception jeremiah. Lock was asked whether joann was virgin when he had. I had sex with her legal team. Even presented detailed maps of the locations. Where the two had been intimate together. The tribunal was so distressing for joanne that she collapsed was sick. A number of times and at one point even had to be sedated. Women's rights groups sympathized with joanne and picketed. Outside throughout the kerry babies tribunal. They sent her letters support and yellow roses in solidarity protesters carried signs with messages that read. We support joanne. His compassion not blame. Women are outraged and joanne is a victim not a criminal. The murder charge for the death of baby. John was dropped but joannes life would never be the same the tribunal found that she had precipitated the death of her own baby on the farm. The judge found that. Joanne choked her baby to death. Despite the state pathologist listing it's cause of death as inclusive and having no physical evidence for this theory there were no charges. Joanne and her family's confessions were coerced through police abuse. Both physical and psychological came to nothing. The tribunal cleared them of wrongdoing but they would not escape criticism. The case became the subject of two books. Nell mccafferty's a woman to blame and my story. An account co written by joanne hayes herself with john barrett four gardy involved with the case took legal action against the authors the publishers and even the shops that sold the book they settled the dispute out of court and received settlements totaling over one hundred and twenty seven thousand euros january of two thousand eighteen. Joanna hayes received an official apology from the state and the acting garda commissioner after a dna sample from blood taken at the time of the investigation finally proved that she wasn't the mother of baby. John the parents or killers of baby. John have never been found the undertaker. Tom cornyn arranged and paid for his funeral. The simple headstone read quote.
