Kevin Heatley, 12 years, Newry, Co Down, N Ireland, UK, shot dead by British solder in controversial circumstances. The army initially claimed he was killed in crossfire but later a corporal was tried and convicted for unlawful killing. He was jailed for three years but was bailed within a week pending an appeal. His appeal some months later was successful. In November 1974 the body of Demond Heatley, the boy's father, was found in Newry Canal. It is believed he took his own life having suffered from depression since his son's death. 197302280113.<br />
