A witness who claims she saw Ian Bailey attempting to clean bloodstained clothing a day after the murder of Sophie T oscan du Plantier has given a fresh statement to the revived garda investigation.

The woman, who lives overseas, has now given a “key statement” to cold-case investigators, and this is forming an “integral part” of the reinvestigation into the unsolved 1996 murder in West Cork.
