For once, Bono hasn't sided with the rich and powerful and it seems to have done some good. During a U2 gig in Monterrey at the weekend, Bono dedicated I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For to the Kirsty MacColl justice campaign and, with the band about to play Mexico city this week, it looks like Vox's intervention may have given the final impetus to Jean MacColl's long fight for the truth about Kirsty's death:

Ruben Aguilar, spokesman for President Vicente Fox, said that federal investigators will soon resolve the case of MacColl, who was killed by a power boat in December 2000 while scuba diving with her two sons in the Caribbean resort of Cozumel.

“The investigation has to offer results,” Aguilar said in a news conference. “The federal government is following this situation.”

It's widely believed that an earlier investigation into Kirsty's death was fudged by the Mexican authorities to protect supermarket magnate Guillermo Gonzalez Nova; one of his employees took the rap and escaped prison through an undisclosed pay-off.
