More than 20 calls were received about the murder of a schoolgirl in 1996 after a Crimewatch episode about the cold case.
Caroline
Glachan, 14, was found dead on the water’s edge of the River Leven in
Bonhill, West Dunbartonshire, 20 years ago on August 25.
She had suffered blunt trauma to the head and drowned.
Her
killer has never been found but officers from Police Scotland remain
committed to finding the culprit and recently made a fresh appeal for
help and information along with the young girl’s mother.
Detective
superintendent Jim Kerr made a further appeal on the BBC Crimewatch
programme on Monday night, which prompted a positive response from the
public.
The programme focused on Caroline’s murder and featured her mother Margaret McKeitch and her best friend Joanne Menzies.
More
than 20 calls were received during the Crimewatch programme and Mr Kerr
said he was “hopeful that some calls could assist with the
investigation”.
They related to the identity of the hooded man in
the artist’s impression and others offered information in relation to
the general inquiry.
Mr Kerr said: “We have received a positive response following last night’s appeal on the Crimewatch programme.
“More
than 20 calls were received and the information given to police will
now be followed up by the officers from the Homicide Governance and
Review Team and I am hopeful that some calls could assist with the
investigation.
“Anyone with information should contact the Operation Fairing Team through 101. Email officers on operationfairing@scotland.pnn.police.uk.
“Alternatively contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
