Reward To Back Nick Rose's Appeal
A £60,000 reward's being offered by an elusive local web site company for information leading to the quashing of the murder conviction against Nick Rose.
The scaffolder from Ilfracombe was jailed for life after being found guilty of 16 year old Charlotte Pinkney's murder by a majority verdict of 11 - 1 at Exeter Crown Court in February 2005.
It was a year after Charlotte went missing. Despite extensive police searches her body has never been found.
The prosecution case relied on forensic and circumstantial evidence.
Judge Graham Cottle ordered Rose to serve a minimum of 20 years. He said that failure to reveal where the body lay was the most serious "aggravating feature".
And, he said, Miss Pinkney's parents were denied the opportunity of their child having a proper burial and "can never rest until they know what happened to their child".
Since then Rose has continued to protest his innocence and various campaigns, including a Facebook page, have been set up in his support.
