200 unsolved murders in London under review

Posted on: Saturday, March 03, 2012

From the BBC:

Scotland Yard is reviewing hundreds of unsolved murders in London, some dating back to the 1960s.

Detectives hope that advances in forensic science will help provide them with a breakthrough.

Operation Yetna involves systematically working through files of unsolved murders to see which would benefit from further investigation.

Its initial focus is on about 200 cases between 1980 and 1990 - before DNA testing became common.

Police are also looking at 37 unsolved murders of women and girls between 1967 and 1980. They say it may be possible to recover forensic evidence where there has been a sexual element to the killing.
