Cold case review

Murder victim Elsie Frost, 14.

A man in his 70s has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a West Yorkshire schoolgirl 51 years ago.

Detective Superintendent Nick Wallen, Senior Investigating Officer in the case, 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 enquiry which officers have been progressing ever since. Following those enquiries we have now arrested a 78 year old man in the Berkshire area and will be interviewing him under caution to progress our investigation.”
