Unsolved Murders (17893/19)


I would like to request a list of unsolved murders within all UK forces since January 1980, or from the most recent available date after January 1980, including all or as many as available of the following:

1) Total number of unsolved murders;

2) Name of victim where known
3) Age of victim where known
4) Gender of victim where known

5) Date of death where known

6) Cause of death where known

Also, if any of these unsolved cases have been re-opened recently for further investigation.


Under section 21 of the Act, we are not required to provide information in response to a request if it is already reasonably accessible to you. The majority of the information you requested is available on the following website:

Please also see attached for additional information which was not included in the above link.

In relation to the final question, the Homicide Review Team are constantly looking across all unsolved cases where any further forensic opportunities could assist unless any new information comes to light.
