Today, Police in  Scotland said that the case was re-investigated and that a 58-year-old man has now been arrested and charged over her death.

Detective Chief Inspector Suzanne said: “Undetected and unresolved homicides in Scotland are never closed and the families of victims are never forgotten.


“Our Homicide Governance Review team keep every undetected and unresolved case under review, and will continue to investigate any new information or lines of enquiry which come to light.

“The passage of time is no barrier to our investigations, and a re-investigation into Mrs McLaughlin’s murder has now resulted in the arrest and charge of a man 35 years later.”
