Police To Re-Examine Death Of Bedford Toddler

Detectives are to take a fresh look at the death of toddler Sam Harry after a coroner ruled he was unlawfully killed this week.

Detectives from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit (MCU) initially investigated the death of 19-month-old Sam in Bedford in 2013.

Two people were arrested during the investigation, however there was insufficient evidence to bring charges with the Crown Prosecution Service.

Coroner Martin Oldham recorded a verdict of ‘unlawful killing’ yesterday (Thursday) following a two-day inquest held at Ampthill.

Following the verdict, head of the MCU Detective Superintendent Paul Fullwood said: “Our thoughts and sympathies are with Sam’s family at this difficult time and we fully understand their frustrations. In light of the coroner’s verdict I will be instigating a fresh review of the case. No unsolved murder is ever closed and we will do everything we can in order to bring those responsible to justice.”
