I've seen very brief reference to this in the past but just lately it has become a bit more high profile.

Very relevant for this forum I would say!

I have never heard of this case before.

Strange indeed the secrecy surrounding it.

Neither had I Freedom, very strange case indeed, why the secrecy for so long.  scratch   Terrible for the poor family, and parents who died knowing their daughter's murderer was still walking around free.   Crying or Very sad

A 78-year-old man from Berkshire has been arrested over the murder of a 14-year-old schoolgirl killed 51 years ago.

The man is being questioned on suspicion of killing Wakefield teenager Elsie Frost in 1965.

She was attacked from behind and stabbed in the back and head as she walked through a railway tunnel near a canal towpath.

Last year, police renewed their efforts to find her killer and received new information after more publicity was given to the case.

Detective Superintendent Nick Wallen said: "A reinvestigation into Elsie's murder was launched in 2015 by West Yorkshire Police, backed by a publicity campaign on the 50th anniversary of her death.

"Since then we have received significant numbers of calls and emails from members of the public offering new information, and have generated new lines of inquiry which officers have been progressing ever since.

"Following those inquiries we have now arrested a 78-year-old man in the Berkshire area and will be interviewing him under caution to progress our investigation."

The man was arrested in Berkshire and is being held at a police station in the Thames Valley where he will be questioned by officers from West Yorkshire.

Hundreds of people were questioned by police after Elsie's body was found at the bottom of a flight of steps by a dog walker, but her killer evaded justice.

"Elsie's brother and sister have been kept fully apprised of the progress of the inquiry and I wish to commend them for their perseverance and that of members of the media in continuing to campaign for her and to put this case back in the public domain," said Mr Wallen.

"The response we have received from the public since launching the reinvestigation is a testament to their dedication and to the strength of feeling Elsie's murder continues to generate in the local community in Wakefield."
