Two men arrested over Jonathan Cairns murder released on police bail
Two men arrested over the 1999 murder of Jonathan Cairns have been released on police bail
A 51-year-old man was arrested in the Limavady area and a 43-year-old in Ballykelly on suspicion of withholding information.
Jonathan (18) was attacked and killed as he made his way home from a night out in the early hours of Sunday April 25 1999.
His body was discovered in a shallow grave at Loughermore Forest close to his Ballykelly home. No-one has ever been convicted of the teenager’s murder although a 49-year-old man was sentenced to five years in prison in 2002 for perverting the course of justice.
A 44-year-old woman arrested earlier this week on suspicion of murdering the teenager has been released on bail.
