Peterborough: Man Charged In 32 Year Old Murder Case

A man has been charged with murdering a Peterborough woman 32 years ago.

Paul Taylor, who is 59 and from Valentine Close in Fareham, Hampshire, is due to appear at Peterborough Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.

He is charged with the murder of Sally McGrath [pictured - right] in 1979.

Sally was last seen alive on the 11th July of that year.

Her body was found on the 1st of March in 1980 in woodland at Castor Hanglands, to the west of Peterborough.

A post-mortem examination found she died from a blow to the head, but it is not known what caused the injury.

Sally was 22 years old and living with her parents in Tower Street in Peterborough at the time.

Police launched a "cold case" review into the death of Sally and other linked sex offences in 2009.

Paul Taylor is also charged with three counts of rape, one serious sexual assault and an indecent assault, also back in 1979.
