    The mother of murdered Emma Caldwell has issued a new TV appeal over the 12-year-old killing and warned the perpetrator remains a danger to others.

    The 27-year-old's body was discovered in Roberton woods near Biggar, South Lanarkshire, in May 2005, a month after she was last seen alive.

    As well as Ms Caldwell's distraught mother Margaret Caldwell, Police Scotland officers also appealed for help in solving what is one of Scotland's most high profile unsolved murders.

    Ms Caldwell urged anyone with information to come forward on the BBC's Crimewatch Roadshow saying: "I need this person to be found. I need him to tell me why he would take my daughter's life and leaving the whole family feeling as they do. We miss her so much. We miss her every day".

    More than 13 years after Emma Caldwell’s murder, detectives report suspect to prosecutors
    June 2018

    POLICE investigating the murder of Emma Caldwell more than 13 years ago have named a suspect in a report to prosecutors.

    Detective Chief Superintendent David McLaren delivered the file to the Crown Office on Friday – almost three years to the day since police were ordered to reopen their investigation into Emma’s death.

    The new inquiry, codenamed Operation Bynum, was ordered after newspaper reports claimed officers in charge of the original inquiry had failed to pursue a man considered a potential suspect at the time.

    During the last of a series of police interviews, the man had taken officers to isolated woodland in South Lanarkshire where Emma’s body was found. The man, now 44, admitted taking her there at least several times before but was never interviewed again.

    The new inquiry team believe they have made significant progress since Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland ordered the murder be reinvestigated in June 2015.

    Their report will now be considered by leading prosecutors at the Crown Office, who will advise detectives on the next steps.

    Cold case cops to probe unsolved sex attacks on back of Emma Caldwell inquiry
    August 2018

    A major new inquiry into unsolved historic crimes has been launched by police on the back of the Emma Caldwell murder investigation.

    The probe will include scores of potential offences which have emerged following a re-examination of more than 1000 statements given to the original inquiry over a decade ago.

    Potential evidence of rapes and other sex crimes will be investigated as well as a range of other possible cases.


    A source said: “This is a major inquiry which will run separately from the murder investigation.

    “It will follow up on evidence of crime in statements given during the original inquiry more than 10 years ago.

    “Because of the nature of the murder inquiry, some relate to potential offences against women working in the red light district at that time but by no means all.

    “There is a genuine range and some of the potential victims are male.”

    The new operation is the third major police inquiry relating to the case.

    Am I reading this correctly? They have a suspect. Who took police to her body. And admitted having taken her there before.
    Yet...police never talked to him again and just can't seem to solve this case?

    Emma Caldwell murder cops close in on suspect after 14-year hunt for killer

    The 14-year-old murder case of Emma Caldwell is on the verge of a dramatic development.

    The Record understands police are about to bring a charge in the wake of investigations.

    Such a move would create fresh hope for Emma’s family in their quest for justice.

    The investigation into her death has been plagued by police errors and controversial efforts to cover up those failings.

    But a comprehensive review of the case ordered by the Crown Office in 2015 has now led to a breakthrough.

    The Crown Office has instructed Police Scotland to appoint specialist officers to carry out a final review of all the evidence gathered.

    A senior police source has indicated this is the clearest signal they have received that a murder charge is likely to follow.
