1-26-2007 United Kingdom:
A KEY suspect in the brutal murder of a pensioner has fled to England, police said yesterday. Detectives believe the man will help them capture the killer of 73- year-old Norman Moffatt.

He was stabbed near his home in Coleraine, Co Derry, on January 26, 2001 while out buying a morning paper as his wife and daughter were asleep. Police believe the murder- er planned to attack a paedophile but got the wrong man.

The detective heading the inquiry said they have received new information that could crack the case. On the sixth anniversary of the atrocity, Inspector Nigel Kyle urged any relatives who may be shielding the killer to break their silence.

He added: "While the murderer may not have a conscience I am sure that his family and his friends do.

"Quite how they can remain silent when they know the person who killed a 73-year-old man in cold blood is beyond me."

Insp Kyle appealed to two people standing at a phone box near the scene of the attack to contact police or else face becoming suspects.

He said: "I can't understand why they wouldn't come forward unless they are trying to shield the person involved." ..more.. by Alan Erwin
