Unsolved: Devastating Crimes Re-Examined by the ECHO To Seek Justice

Liverpool, UK – The ECHO launched an unsolved serious crime series to shed light on some of the most devastating incidents in Merseyside. The bi-weekly series, which goes out at around 7pm every other Thursday, was started in October with the purpose of re-examining serious crimes and seeking justice for victims’ families. By analyzing how these cases were reported at the time and the public response across the region, the ECHO aims to encourage individuals with information to come forward.

The series began by highlighting the case of Colin Hughes, a popular chef who was fatally stabbed outside his home in 2010. His partner Paula Greenwood shared her heartbreaking story, emphasizing how her life was forever changed by the tragic event. The ECHO hopes to compel the community, especially those in the Old Swan area, to come forward with any information that could provide closure to Ms. Greenwood and bring justice for Mr. Hughes.

Additionally, the series delved into the case of family man Leroy Ottey, who was brutally executed on his front doorstep in Wavertree in 2018. Neighbors of the Ottey family recounted their experiences living behind the police cordon after the incident, shedding light on the emotional impact of the crime on the community.

Further pieces explored historic events, including the unsolved murder of James Gibson who was gunned down in 1988, and the tragic death of Roland Carmagnole, a physics student beaten to death in 1987. Despite the passage of many years, justice has yet to be served in these cases, leaving families and communities without closure.

As the series continues, the ECHO aims to cover a range of unsolved crimes to bring justice to the victims and their families. This project provides a platform for individuals with information to come forward, contributing to the pursuit of justice in these unsolved cases.
