Police renew appeal in 25 year old murder case

Patrick Hurling

Police in Hertfordshire are renewing their appeal for information about a murder that happened 25 years ago.

Patrick Hurling was beaten and his house set on fire near Hertford in 1990.

A reward of £20,000 was offered by an anonymous group of businessmen for information on the case. However, despite three people being arrested in connection with the case, no-one has ever been charged.

"Whilst I appreciate Patrick was murdered 25 years ago, I am convinced someone somewhere will have some information they may not have shared with police previously which could be vital to solving the case. If you know anything, please contact us.We have been working closely with Patrick's children who understandably remain keen to discover what happened to their father and see justice for him. If you can offer anything to assist please do call."

– Detective Sergeant Dave Taylor from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire

"Our father was brutally killed and we are desperate for answers. We are fully supportive and appreciative of the efforts of police and would echo their appeal for information. If you know absolutely anything which could assist the investigation we would urge you to please make contact with officers."
