SYP - MURDER OF NORA TAIT
South Yorkshire Police investigation into the Murder of Nora Tait in 2005. Public appeal for information.
Details of Incident
The Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Mark Oughton said:
"Nora was killed in the most horrific circumstances, and 15 years on, we are still very much committed to finding her killer, and bringing some element of closure for her family. We have always believed that the answers as to what happened to Nora, and who killed her, lie within the local community."
"This inquiry has received an incredible amount of support from the public over the years, but I know that people's allegiances change over time. I am urging anyone who holds information about Nora's death, that they have never previously shared, to come forward."
Investigators will also be taking advantage of advances in scientific techniques to re-examine evidence in Nora's case for previously undetected traces of DNA.
DCI Oughton continued "Advancing DNA technology regularly provides us with new opportunities in cases like this. This has led to successes in other historic investigations and I am hopeful that it will lead to new lines of enquiry here."
"Nora's family deserve to know what happened to her. If you have any information which you haven't previously shared, no matter how insignificant, there are a number of ways you can pass this to us. If you don't feel comfortable speaking to police, you can give information anonymously".
