Cold Case Website Launched

23 December 2010, 06:00

Norfolk Police have launched a new website to try and solve Cold Cases, some of which go back to the 1960's.

They also plan to use Twitter and Facebook to highlight each case via the Norfolk Constabulary accounts.

This comes as the 18-year anniversary of the Johanna Young enquiry fast approaches. The new Cold Cases website aims to reach a new set of people who may have information that could not only solve this case, but a number of other enqiuries as well.

Tony Deacon is a Senior Investigator in the Cold Case team and welcomes the new angle to his investigations, he tells Heart:

"Any new information we receive which can help us solve one of the cases is of vital importance. We hope that people who may not have felt they could come forward and contact us at the time of each case will see them highlighted and call us now.

"Sadly, in another of our unsolved cases, Natalie Pearman, whose body was discovered on 20th November 2002, would have been 35 on Christmas Day this year if she had not been murdered. Being able to reach out to new audiences by using the internet may bring new details which could help us close this and other enquiries and bring resolution to hers and the other families of those involved."
