Almost 26 years since the murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier at her West Cork holiday home, there are still avenues via which gardaí could catch the killer – or identify the culprit if the person is dead.

The latter is claimed by twice-arrested Ian Bailey, convicted of the murder in France in 2019 and sentenced in absentia to 25 years in jail, although he has always denied any involvement.
