Police to consider new evidence in Carole Packman case

Dorset Police say they will consider new evidence given to them by an ITV team investigating the disappearance of Carole Packman in Dorset.

Mother and wife Carole Packman vanished in 1985

In a four-part series, Mark Williams-Thomas re-examined what exactly happened to Carole 30 years ago, in 'The Investigator: A British Crime Story'.

Carole's husband Russell Causley was convicted of her murder, despite no body ever being found.

Dorset Police say they are considering new information handed to them by the ITV show and have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

This case has been thoroughly reviewed on a number of occasions by Dorset Police over the last 30 years.

We would to thank ITV for providing us with their file and we will now consider the new information passed to us. As is usual in such cases, we are unable to comment further until this process has been completed.

We will continue to provide support to Carole's family during this very difficult time.

They want to know what happened to Carole and this case will remain open until her body is found.
