It's very hard to make up your own mind about such a terrible thing that has happened.
The press, TV definitely don't make this easy, then there's the rumours of this and that, which seem to explode at every corner.
So, my suggestion is that, how about we hear Mark's side of the story in his own words?
Maybe it will open up old wounds for some, but he should have the chance to explain.
