The 'Golden Hour' is a critical period in any criminal investigation – and it essentially essentially relates to time being of the essence. The early stages of an investigation are deemed so pivotal that they can sometimes make or break an attempt to bring a killer to justice.

"I understand their desire to see justice done and I believe that people within the Ballykelly community have information that could assist my investigation.

“Some people were not prepared to come forward at the time for a variety of reasons but I am asking people to search their conscience and think again. Circumstances and loyalties may have changed over years and it is never too late to do the right thing.

"Anyone with information should call detectives on 101. Or, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
