WHEN NOLAN Connell saw his image for the first time in many years in a full length mirror, he cried.

That, according to his aunt Pearline, was an emotional moment for the 40-year-old Connell, who was released from HMP Dodds yesterday after serving 25 years for killing a schoolgirl, when he was only 15.

“I took him straight to the barber after we left court because I told him he wasn’t coming home looking like that,” she said in reference to the afro hairstyle he was wearing.

“He looked in the mirror and he actually cried when he saw himself and he said he has not seen a mirror for so long,”said Pearline, her voice breaking with emotion. (MB)
