The murder of Mr Thompson took place at the ‘Two in the bush pub’ at Radford, his attackers from an area of the city which is known as the Meadow chased Mr Thompson with sticks and baseball bats and he was beaten to ground.

Mr Thompson who was age 19 years old was killed on November 30th 1997, his murder was believed to be linked with other crimes which had happened during that time, after several investigations, six people were tried of his murder but all were acquitted, till date this crime still remain unsolved as no one else has been arrested nor charged for the killing of  Mr Shane Thompson.

This story has been covered in other blog posts on this website. It is one that is sadly still unsolved and those responsible have not been brought to justice.
