Upper Bann MP Carla Lockhart has appealed to the public to think ‘long and hard’ and seek to recollect any information that may be of help to the ongoing investigation into the murders of three RUC officers in 1982. Sergeant Sean Quinn and Constables Paul Hamilton and Allan McCloy died in an IRA bomb attack at Kinnego Embankment, near Oxford Island, in October 1982.
Speaking today, Carla Lockhart said,
“News that progress is being made into this investigation is welcome. Time must never be an obstacle to justice. The sense of pain and loss never leaves the hearts of those left behind and it is right that the search for truth and the need to bring perpetrators to justice must never cease.
It has been encouraging to hear the words of Jon Boutcher in relation to his investigation. We now have images of the helmets that those who fled the scene were believed to have been wearing. Do these images bring back a memory that could help this investigation? The motorcycle was found in Francis Street in Lurgan – does anyone remember seeing this?
I would encourage everyone to think long and hard and bring any relevant information – no matter how small or seemingly insignificant – to the investigations team. 38 years on we can still see justice served and truth brought to the families.”
