Monday there were reports that if as predicted he was found not guilty of murder by reason of insanity he would be returned to Broadmoor and undertake possibly many years of treatment. But that is also with a view to release at some point-of-time in the future.
He is likely to need medication, support and more for life.
Unless guarantees that all of the above can be provided will the public ever feel that Salvador should be released back into the community?
Family members of Ms. Silva wept in court.
While some in the mainstream media have reported today's verdict as 'Salvador cleared' that is not true.
But why didn't police who responded to reports that a man was running wild carrying weapons shoot at Salvador, either to injure or stop him? In the past that has happened. Did they initially think it was terrorist related and want the man alive?
You have to wonder if they could have acted differently and prevented the murder of Silva.
Salvador will be detained indefinitely in a high-security psychiatric hospital under the Mental Health Act reports BBC News.
