The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said today that men were seen running from the dark blue Toyota Camry used to shoot the 52-year-old dead in in Co Armagh, Northern Ireland, as he drove to work at Maghaberry jail.

PSNI Detective Chief Inspector Richard Harkness said: "A number of men were seen running away from the Toyota Camry car."

He added: "I would also appeal to people in Cookstown to think about what they saw in the days and weeks before David's murder last year. Did you see any unusual activity around David's home or the places he frequented?

"I would remind people there is a reward of up to £10,000 available for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible."
