PSNI issues fresh appeal in Thomas Devlin murder inquiry

Police in the North have issued a fresh appeal for information about the murder of Belfast schoolboy Thomas Devlin six months ago.

The 15-year-old was stabbed to death while walking with friends on Somerton Road in the north of the city last August.

A number of people have been arrested in connection with the killing, but all were later released without charge.

The PSNI has identified the prime suspects in the murder as two young men who were walking in the area with a black-and-white dog.

The police said today that they still wanted to talk to a number of people who were passing through the Somerton Road area at the time of the stabbing, but who have yet to come forward.
