Something else for us to discuss - those of us who remember this, anyway.

The lack of forensic evidence and no CCTV surveillance cameras to help identify the culprits [ie. in 1985], means that the policeman's murderer[s] may never be caught, unfortunately.

Just a thought, if the perpetrators of the PC's murder had been caught and jailed at the time of the crime, then, they probably would now be free again [ or, at large], having served a 'life sentence' of approximately 30 years.

.......the policeman's murderer[s] may never be caught, unfortunately.

The truth is that the person or people involved in this murder are almost certainly known to the Police. The difficulty lies in collecting enough evidence to cause the CPS to authorise a prosecution that is likely to result in a conviction.
