Kinnear's wife Nicolette said it’d been a tough time for the family.

“My belief is to obtain or to ensure that everyone that played a role must be brought to book and they're held accountable,” she said.

Nicolette said she was following the cases closely: “Pretty much everything that I've known, and always suspected, I put on paper. I knew that they didn't wake up one morning and just decide, okay, let’s go take out Kinnear today. It's just a matter of connecting the dots, and the dates.”

She said there were still too many unanswered questions even though numerous arrests had been made.
