No-one has ever been brought to justice over the infamous 1984 incident

Specialist gardaí and a forensic anthropologist have exhumed the body of "Baby John" -- whose killing sparked the infamous "Kerry Babies" case.

The infant boy was found stabbed to death in April 1984 on White Strand in Caherciveen.

The exhumation is part of the fresh investigation launched three years ago, following the state apology to Joanne Hayes -- the local woman wrongly accused of killing him.

Journalist Michael O'Regan says the murder changed Ireland -- but Baby John has still not had justice.
