What is the difference, if the alleged perpetrator of a sex crime is famous, or, not? In the case of the BBC, the implication is that the illegal behavior was tolerated because jeopardizing the brand was worse, to senior executives, than exposing the crime. That turns out to trigger a second story. What do you do, when the perpetrator who has passed away, successfully hid behind a shield; whether of celebrity, community appreciation, or the walls of his or her home?
The reach of the law can't reach beyond the cemetary but exposure may provide some relief to victims. On the other hand, how does one prove an injury so grave?
