    Viable lines of enquiry thanks to public
    Devon and Cornwall Police are pursuing a number of viable lines of enquiry into the 1997 murder of Exwick schoolgirl Kate Bushell thanks to the public.

    Yesterday [6 November] the Force launched a major public appeal for information for the 20thanniversary of Kate’s murder as part of an investigative review into her death.

    Since 6am yesterday almost 100 calls and messages have been received by the investigation team via the incident room and online police portal. There has been huge interest on social media from the public with more than 60,000 views for the public appeal films.

    The Exwick neighbourhood policing team is conducting patrols in the Exwick area all week and the response from the local community has been extremely supportive, with people keen to assist with the investigation.

    Senior Investigating Officer Paul Burgan said: “The response and the interest from the public has been fantastic so far and we are thankful for that. As a result a number of viable lines of enquiry are being progressed by members of the Major Crime Team.

    Kate Bushell was 14 when her throat was slashed as she walked her neighbour's dog along a quiet country lane 300 yards from her home.

    The killing, which took place on a Saturday afternoon in November 1997, shocked the nation due to its severity and apparent randomness.
