dabei seit 2013
On November 3rd, 2015, Joseph Gepp and I met with the Cold Case Team. Present was Elisabeth Holzer, whom we met with last year, and Mr. Kurt Linzer, the head of the team. Although Joseph had contact with him prior, this was my first meeting with Mr. Linzer. The other members of the team were also present.http://www.aeryngillern.com/Aeryn_Gillern/Home.html
We saw the Case File that they have compiled, which now includes over 50 interviews that they have conducted over the past year. They also shared some images, and information regarding their search of the Danube Canal in May 2015.
Although we still have no answers, both Joseph and I walked away from the meeting feeling very confidant that they are totally committed to Aeryn's case.
The meeting with them last year was good, but highly emotional for me, as it was the first time meeting with the Cold Case Squad. I didn't know what to expect and feared the same treatment I had received from previous police meetings. But they proved me wrong.
This meeting I was more settled, and was able to appreciate the sincerity of the Team's commitment and their hard work.
Hearing the passion in Mr. Linzer's voice when he told me that they would continue to pursue all possible leads and would continue to reach out to other countries for their cooperation. That their goal was to uncover the truth and return Aeryn, was a feeling that is hard to explain.
I felt that my love, and concern for Aeryn was finally validated by the police. That Aeryn was no longer viewed as "less than" and that I was no longer expected to apologize for grieving the loss of my son.
To know that their goal is my goal, is a feeling that is hard to describe.
Joseph and I met the next day to go over the meeting and see if our thoughts or feelings had changed. The answer is no. We both believe, that in the most unfortunate of situations, we are fortunate to have Mr. Linzer, Elisabeth Holzer and the rest of the team on our side. After years of not getting an appropriate response from the police, I feel we have the advocates that we should have had from day one.
Thank you Cold Case Team.
