Clydach murders: SWP statement
Main article content
In January 2021, South Wales Police announced an investigative assessment of specific areas referred to by legal representatives of David Morris.
This work has also included following up potential new witnesses identified in a BBC Wales Investigates programme on the case.
As part of this work, detectives have spoken to both witnesses and the Crown Prosecution Service has advised that no information has been provided which undermines the conviction of David Morris.
The investigative assessment, which is being overseen by a senior investigating officer, a deputy and a forensic investigator from Devon & Cornwall Police, is now moving to consider the forensic issues that were challenged within the BBC documentary.
While this work continues, our thoughts remain with the families and those affected by this case and acknowledge the significant impact it has on them.
