Police Ombudsman Makes Fresh Appeal about Death of Portadown Teenager

Published Date: 23.03.2004

The Police Ombudsman's Office has issued a fresh appeal for information relating to the death in July 1991 of Portadown teenager Alice McLoughlin.

The 16-year-old died from a gunshot wound to the head while in a car driven by a police officer. She had previously accepted a lift from the officer, following a Loyalist band parade at Markethill.

Police Ombudsman investigators would like to hear from anyone who has any information about potential sightings of Alice in the days and weeks before her death.

They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who believes they may have seen her at the Coach Inn in Banbridge in late June/early July 1991, or at a Loyalist bonfire at waste ground near Watson Street in Portadown on 1 July 1991.

Investigators would also like to hear from anyone who was in Portadown town centre between midnight and 1am on July 5/6 1991, particularly anyone who heard a gunshot in the area at this time.

Anyone with information about any of these incidents is asked to call the Police Ombudsman's Office on 028 9082 8777.
