Unsolved Merseyside Murders Revisited in ECHO’s New Series, Seeking Justice for Victims

Liverpool, England – The ECHO launched the unsolved serious crime series last year, aiming to re-examine some of the most devastating incidents that have occurred in Merseyside. The bi-weekly series, released every other Thursday at around 7pm, seeks to bring justice to the families of victims by shedding new light on these cases and appealing to the public for any information that may help solve them.

The series began in October and kicked off with the case of Colin Hughes, a beloved chef who was fatally stabbed outside his home in 2010. His partner, Paula Greenwood, shared her heartbreaking story and called on the community to come forward and provide closure. The ECHO’s in-depth investigation also revealed that Greenwood’s home has been repeatedly targeted since Hughes’ death, adding another layer of tragedy to the story.

The next installment of the series focused on Alderson Road, a peaceful street in Wavertree that became the scene of a brutal execution in 2018. The ECHO spoke with neighbors and uncovered the aftermath of the incident, showing the lasting impact of such a harrowing event on a close-knit community.

Subsequent pieces in the series delved into historic events that devastated the city, including the unsolved murder of a young man who was shot in 1988, as well as the tragic death of a physics student who was beaten to death while walking home after a night out in 1987. Each story highlighted the lingering pain and unanswered questions left in the wake of these unsolved crimes.

As the series continues, the ECHO aims to shine a light on a range of unsolved crimes in Merseyside, hoping to bring long-overdue justice to the victims and their families.
