Police make renewed David Black murder appeal

The M1 after David Black was shot dead in 2012

POLICE have welcomed the sentencing of Fiona McFadden and made a renewed appeal for information about the murder of David Black.

The father-of-two from Cookstown, Co Tyrone was killed at about 7.30am on November 1 2012 as he drove to work on the M1.

One mile from the Oxford Island exit ramp, a dark blue Toyota Camry with a southern registration, 94 D 50997, pulled alongside his car and shots were fired.

The car was found burnt out in the Inglewood district of Lurgan at 7.50am.

Detective Inspector John Caldwell said he was "making a particular appeal to people in Lurgan to think about what they know and what they saw at the time of the murder".

“The dark blue Toyota Camry was in Lurgan prior to the shooting on the evening of 31 October and was set on fire about 20 minutes after David’s murder a few miles from the M1 at Inglewood on the morning of 1 November. A number of men were seen running away from the Toyota Camry car."

He said there was a reward of up to £10,000 for information.

"I would also appeal to people in Cookstown to think about what they saw in the days and weeks before David’s murder. Did you see any unusual activity around David’s home or the places he frequented? If you have any information, please contact us," he said.
