'One piece of evidence

could help catch killer',

says dad of murdered Clapham teen


Wednesday 17th February 2010
Wandsworth Guardian
By Paul Cahalan


Three years after his 15-year-old son was gunned down at his front door, a grieving father again appealed to the Clapham community to name his murderer, as he described the daily torment of knowing his son’s killer walks free.

Billy Cox, who died on Valentine's Day 2007, was held by his 13-year-old sister Elizabeth as he bled to death from a gunshot wound to the chest, in what police believe was a drug-related incident.

Despite detectives being “confident” they know the killer, and “several” people naming the same man, evidence - even with the promise of a Ł20,000 reward - has not been strong enough for a conviction.

World's oldest bling:

two tiny 100,000-year-old shells

They may not compare with today's diamond-encrusted bling,

but in their own way, they are of far greater value.

Two tiny shells have been confirmed

as the world's oldest known items of jewellery,

probably used on a necklace about 100,000 years ago.

It's more than just a pretty trinket:

the shells have forced scientists

to rethink their ideas on when human culture and language

first developed.
