A special squad of g ardaí has been quietly re investigating the notoriously brutal murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier, the Sunday Independent can reveal.

Five officers, operating under a Superintendent, have been taking statements and checking claims that have stemmed from the screening of two televisiondocumentaries and an appeal for information from Sophie’s son, Pierre-Louis Baudey-Vignaud.
