John Campion said “My thoughts remain with Archie’s family at this exceptionally difficult time. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those involved in this unimaginably challenging investigation. Our communities should be reassured by the hard work of the police and other partners to bring justice for Archie in this extremely tragic case.”
