Police officers reviewing the unsolved murder of a teenage student in Bath a quarter of a century after she was killed are continuing to appeal
to members of the public to come forward with information following an appeal on Crimewatch in September.
Officers investigating the death of 17 year old Melanie Road received information from members of the public which generated a number of potential leads.
On Friday June 8, 1984, the A-level student went out for the evening with her boyfriend to Beau Nash, a local nightclub in Kingston Parade,
a road which has been swallowed up by the Southgate development. She left that venue at 01.30hrs on Saturday June 9, and was last seen alive by her
friends a short time later in Broad Street.
Melanie's body was discovered at 05.30hrs that morning by a milk man close to a block of garages in St Stephens Court, Lansdown, a short distance from her home.
DCI Mike Carter who is leading this investigation said: "This enquiry is still very much ongoing, some 25 years on and we are committed to solving it.
"Following the Crimewatch appeal we received calls and information from members of the public that have proved useful. However we would still like
to speak to anyone who thinks they may have information that could help with this enquiry.
"I would like to reassure members of the public that we would rather have your piece of information a hundred times over than not at all.
That piece of information, no matter how large or small may prove vital to this enquiry.
DCI Carter added: "If anyone had concerns about the behaviour of individuals at the time, but were unsure, for whatever reason, about coming forward,
I would urge them to speak to us now.
"The lapse in time is not an issue, as people can be easily eliminated from the enquiry due to the evidence now available to the investigating team."
