New PSNI team to investigate unsolved North murders


20/01/2006 - 12:13:47

The PSNI has put together a team of detectives to investigate more than 3,000 unsolved murders committed during the Troubles in the North.

The 100-strong Historical Inquiries Team has been asked to use scientific advances and new forensics techniques in an effort to achieve a breakthrough in solving the cases.

The PSNI is hoping the move will solve a number of murders, but even if it does not, families will be given whatever new information can be gleaned.

Three thousand, two hundred murders committed in the 30 years after 1968 are due to be reinvestigated as part of the initiative.
