1985 Murder of PC Blakelock – Suspect may be charged !

 Murder charges could be brought against a suspect for his involvement in the murder of brave PC Keith Blakelock, who died at the hands of a frenzied mob in 1985 in London.Three men were convicted of the murder in 1987 but their convictions were quashed four and a half years later,after forensic tests on pages of key interview records suggested they had been fabricated. One of the three,Winston Silcott, accepted £50,000 compensation from the Home Office but remained in prison because he had committed murder,  but an unrelated murder. He was released in 2003.

None of the three men originally convicted of the murder is the suspect in the new case.

We have mentioned the murder of PC Blakelock in one of our earlier posts (see “Lest We Forget”).

PS  see Huffington Post UK for some more info on the case.
