DNA breakthrough on 1946 murder

Scientists working on the case of a schoolgirl raped and shot dead 62 years ago have made a possible breakthrough in the hunt for the killer.

Muriel Drinkwater, 12, was attacked as she walked home from a school in Penllergaer, Swansea in June 1946.

Forensic experts have now obtained a DNA profile related to the killer’s family from a semen stain on her coat.
