BT 03/14/05 PSNI Doesn’t Deal In Speculation

(Poster’s Note: Detective Chief Inspector Mark Dornan must be a member of the PSNI in some other 'northern Ireland'. OR could there be two ‘standard operating procedures’, one for republicans and another for loyalists? Jay)


Claims of LVF link to murder are 'not helpful'

Police investigating the murder of Lisa Dorrian today insisted that speculation of LVF involvement in her murder was not helping to find her killers.

But the senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Mark Dornan, confirmed they are continuing to follow active lines of inquiry in the Bangor woman's murder.

He said: "We are aware there has been speculation about who is involved, but police investigations do not deal in speculation and it is not helpful to our investigation.

"The police deal in evidence and there are active lines of inquiry."

Speculation of an LVF link to the 25-year-old's murder mounted after graffiti appeared in the Ballyhalbert and Newtownards area.

Messages painted on the entrance of the village's Moatlands Estate say 'PSNI ask the LVF' where Lisa is and 'LVF drug-dealing scum'.

Strangford Assembly member, Alderman Kieran McCarthy, said he hoped the speculation would not hamper the investigation and urged anyone with information to come forward.

At the weekend, caravan owners returned to the Ballyhalbert caravan park where Lisa was last seen a fortnight ago to help murder squad detectives. House-to-house inquiries were also carried out in the seaside village.

Last Thursday, a murder probe was launched on the basis of inquiries but Lisa's body has not yet been found.

Two men arrested in relation to her murder were released without charge on Friday afternoon.

A police spokeswoman urged anyone with information to contact 9065 0222 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
