He later returned to finish the interview with the support of his wife Sophie. The 71-year-old explained: “It’s hard to have an interview like this with it being so raw, I was only released three days ago. I’m just catching up on my sleep”.

During the interview, Starr admitted that he had lost faith in the justice system and contemplated suicide. He also said that he doesn't think the names of the accused should be released until they are charged.
