Police arrest fifth suspect over murder of Joseph Reynolds 20 years ago

A MAN arrested by police investigating the murder of Joseph Reynolds in Belfast 20 years ago has been released.

Detectives said the 54-year-old was released pending a report to the director of the Public Prosecution Service.

He was questioned for several hours at the serious crime suite in Antrim about the murder.

Todays’ arrest brings to five the number of UVF suspects arrested about the murder.

Mr Reynolds, 40, from west Belfast, was travelling to work when his van was ambushed by UVF gunmen on Sydenham Road on 12 October 1993.

Three others were injured in the attack.

Last October, police reopened the investigation into Mr Reynolds’ murder as part of a crackdown on the loyalist terror group in east Belfast.
