The Unsolved Murder of Daniel Morgan

Listen in pop-out player

The private investigator, Daniel Morgan, was murdered 27 years ago. He was found with an axe embedded in his skull in a south London car park. Despite five police investigations and a trial, no-one has ever been convicted of the 1987 murder. Police corruption is thought to have impeded the investigation and to have been a motive for the killing itself. And now a leading barrister suggests there may be a link with an allegedly corrupt police officer who worked on the investigation of murdered teenager, Stephen Lawrence. Adrian Goldberg first reported on this story for The Report in 2011. In this edition, he asks whether the connection between the two cases - both in south east London and six years apart - may finally bring justice for the Morgan family.
