More than 4,000 interviewed in Pearman case

Miss Pearman's body was found by a lorry driver at about 3.50am. She was last seen alive in Rouen Road, Norwich, at 1.15am the same day.

At the time of the initial investigation, DNA samples were taken and loaded onto the national database but no match has yet been found.

Over the years, more than 4,000 people have been interviewed and hundreds of men provided DNA samples for testing.

Pearman cop: Case can be easily solved

Lead detective in the Pearman investigation Detective Chief Inspector Andy Guy said the case could be easily solved with one piece of information.

There are people who know or strongly suspect who was responsible and I'm sure that plays heavily on their conscience.

"All we need is a name and we will do the rest, it is a simple matter of matching DNA. Natalie was little more than a child when she was murdered and her and her family deserve that this case is resolved

– Detective Chief Inspector Andy Guy
