Shergar Filmhandlung und Hintergrund VideoWhat Happened to Shergar? 5 Theories You'll Hear in Pubs
Im Februar wurde dieser damals fünf Jahre alte Hengst in Irland nach seiner ersten Decksaison entführt. Es war ein wahrhaft mysteriöses Verbrechen, das praktisch ungelöst bleibt.
Nach gescheiterten Versuchen, Geld für den Hengst zu verlangen, wurde dieser brutal getötet — aber seine Leiche nie gefunden.
Europas Pferd des Jahres es hatte nie zuvor einen deutlicheren Derbysieger in England gegeben , deckte für eine Decktaxe von umgerechnet Er galt als sanft, ruhig und freundlich.
Er wurde wie erwähnt nur fünf Jahre alt, da er mitten in der Nacht aus dem Ballymany Stud entführt wurde.
Seine Entführer gehörten der IRA an. Jetzt zu RaceBets. Er öffnete und sah zwei Männer, die Sturmhauben mit Waffen trugen.
Wir wollen 3 Millionen Pfund für ihn. Jim Fitzgerald, ein Vater von sechs Kindern, wurde mit vorgehaltener Waffe zu Shergars Stall gezwungen, wo sich sechs weitere maskierte Bewaffnete ihnen anschlossen.
Er lud Shergar in den Pferdeanhänger, den die Männer mitgebracht hatten. Fitzgerald wurde dann mit vorgehaltener Waffe in ihr Auto gezwungen. Nachdem sie ihn drei Stunden lang herumgefahren hatten, warfen die Entführer Fitzgerald aus dem Auto.
The thieves said that a representative of the syndicate should go to the Crofton Hotel in Dublin and ask for any messages for "Johnny Logan"—the name of an Irish singer.
Stan Cosgrove went to the hotel and asked for any messages. No message was delivered, and Cosgrove returned home after waiting. Shortly afterwards the negotiators received a phone call from the thieves, angry at the presence of the police, and threatening that if any members of the gang were captured or killed, the negotiators and police would be murdered in retribution.
On Saturday 12 February the thieves contacted the negotiators and said that proof had been left at the Rosnaree Hotel.
When this was picked up, it contained several polaroid pictures showing Shergar; some of the pictures showed the horse's head next to a copy of The Irish News , dated 11 February.
The caller told the negotiators "If you're not satisfied, that's it". The syndicate attempted to re-establish contact with the gang, but there was no response to newspaper requests to do so.
The syndicate committee put together a report for the full syndicate, which examined the possible motives behind the theft.
They concluded that the theft of Shergar was either undertaken to create confusion and publicity, rather than obtaining money, or that the negotiations were undertaken with naivety.
They reached this conclusion after taking a number of factors into account. In another call, the negotiator in Paris was told to get agreement for a ransom, but told he should not contact anyone in Ireland, despite some of the shareholders being there.
The initial police investigation was hindered by the eight-hour lapse before the crime was reported, and by a local Thoroughbred auction, which meant several horseboxes were travelling in the area.
Murphy had a strong Irish brogue , wore a trilby hat and had a self-effacing sense of humour. At one press conference, he announced "A clue?
That is something we haven't got". On 16 February a description of the horsebox used by the thieves—from a description given by Fitzgerald—was released.
It was either light green or light blue with no working lights and no licence plates. Baerlein observes that in reporting the Shergar case, "the press speculation was remarkable for its enthusiasm and its inaccuracy over a long period of time".
He put the money in the boot of his car in a remote village, which Minogue was to collect once the horse had been released. The following day Kenirons found the boot of his car forced open and the money missing.
Minogue had also disappeared, and the money was never recovered. Shergar was insured through several different insurance companies.
The 20 policies that included a theft clause were all settled in full in June , even though there was a question of whether there was a need to.
Terry Hall, an animal insurance insurer with Lloyd's of London, observes that while theft was clear cut, the demand of a ransom meant that the action was considered extortion, rather than theft, which meant the mortality and theft policies did not have to be paid out.
Legal advice was sought by Lloyd's of London, who were told that although it was a grey area, payment was advised. Police and intelligence sources considered the IRA as the most likely suspects behind the theft.
In it, he states that the plot to steal and ransom Shergar was devised by Kevin Mallon, a leading IRA member who sat on the Army Council; Mallon came up with the idea while serving time in Portlaoise Prison.
Two weeks after Shergar's kidnap, Gerry Fitzgerald told O'Callaghan that he had been involved in the theft, and that Shergar had been killed early on in the process after the horse panicked and no-one present could cope with him.
In the process the horse damaged its left leg and the decision was made to kill it. According to O'Callaghan, in August , in an effort to raise the money that they failed to do with the Shergar theft, Fitzgerald and his group attempted to kidnap the businessman Galen Weston at his home in County Wicklow.
