A reward of up to £10,000 has been offered for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for the murder of journalist Lyra McKee.
Following the offer of a reward for up to £10,000 for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Lyra McKee’s murder by the charity Crimestoppers, Detective Superintendent Jason Murphy said: “Lyra tragically lost her life when bullets were fired indiscriminately into the community in Creggan. It was a senseless murder of a gifted young woman and Lyra’s family and loved ones have been left devastated by their loss.
“I want to find the people who murdered Lyra and the information that can help us bring Lyra’s killer to justice lies within the local community. People saw the gunman – people know who is responsible. I’m asking them to come forward and help us.
“We have received widespread public support to date and if this reward further encourages some individuals to come forward, this may help assist us in our efforts to get some justice for Lyra and her loved ones.”
