The Policed Podcast

3. Policed in Ireland – Terence Wheelock

In this episode we speak to family of Terence Wheelock, who died after falling ill in Garda custody in 2005. The family speak powerfully about what it was like to have a loved one die in such circumstances, and how they have been treated by the police since then as they have searched for answers. We also hear from Gary Gannon, TD, and Dr Jonathan Ilan, of London City University.

Part 1 looks at Terence the man, what exactly happened on 02 June 2005 and explores the range of doubts and questions that haunt the Wheelock family.

Part 2 focuses on the investigations that have occurred into his death, the harrassment that the family have endured since then, and why they are calling for a public inquiry.
