    50 Years since Elsie was murdered, and still no justice...

    The family of a schoolgirl stabbed to death 50 years ago are searching for the truth after the case was never solved.
    The shocking murder of 14-year-old Elsie Frost sparked the biggest man-hunt the city had ever seen after she was found dead on October 9, 1965.
    Elsie had been stabbed several times when her body was discovered at a remote spot known as the ABC Steps, near Horbury Lagoon.
    Fifty years on, her killer has never been brought to justice and the family want to know why police files on teh case have been restricted from release until 2060.
    Her brother Colin Frost, 56, said: "We want justice for Elsie."

    Family in search for justice fifty years since death of schoolgirl

    By Don Mort

    Schoolgirl Elsie Frost's brutal murder in 1965 sent shock-waves through the city and saw the launch of a massive police manhunt.

    Elsie was 14 when her huddled body was found near Horbury Lagoon at around 4.30pm on Saturday, October 9.
    She had been stabbed several times in the back and skull.
    An inquest into her death ordered that a railway fireman, Ian Bernard Spencer, 33, must stand trail for the murder after the jury heard he was seen at the lagoon and had a collection of knives.
    But the case was thrown out due to the lack of evidence and the case was never solved.
    Now Elsie's brother Colin Frost, 56, and sister Anne Cleave, 68, are searching for the truth.
    Mr Frost said: "We are looking for answers. we have lived for 50 years with this and we have no answers at all. We want justice for Elsie.
    "It's had a big effect on our family.
    "Our parents both died with a huge amount of guilt. Myself and Anne just want the truth."
    The family are frustrated that police files on the case have been restricted from release until 2060.
    The National Archives said the decision was made earlier this year by its Freedom of Information Team and the Metropolitan Police.
    Mr Frost said: "There are a lot of unanswered questions in terms of the files being closed."
    On the tragic day in 1965, the Lupset teenager, a prefect at Snapethorpe School, had been helping with boating activities at the lagoon, but left alone.
    Police said she was from a happy family and it was difficult to see how she could have made any enemies.
    Scotland Yard's Dep Supt Herbert Guiver and Sgt Leslie Emment came to the city in a bid to snare the killer.
    More than 40,000 people were quizzed and 12,000 statements made. Officers knocked on more thn 30,000 doors during their investigation. Even part of the Aire and Calder Canal were drained during the inquiry.
    However, the killer was never brought to justice.

    West Yorkshire Police statements

    Det Chf Insp Paul Fountain said this week: "A full review of this case was conducted in 2013 but no new evidence was detected on which to base a re-investigation. A man was remanded in custody for the offence in 1966 but was not convicted at court. As with any unsolved murder, the case remains open, and any new evidence which comes to light will be investigated."

    just heard the piece on radio 4. Having read contributions about this sad and perplexing case I cannot understand the reluctance of the authorities to release details which would give Elsie's brother and sister some measure of closure. This stance only encourages conspiracy theories. Has justice been done, no.
