A SENIOR PSNI detective will make an appeal on BBC’s Crimewatch Roadshow Live programme tomorrow, Thursday 21 March, over the brutal murder of wealthy drug baron Jim Donegan.
He was blasted to death eight times to the head and upper boady on the Glen Road in West Belfast on last December 4.
The programme will air at 9.15 am on BBC 1.
The 43 year old was shot dead at point blank range as he sat in his flame red Porsche Panamera car outside a school on the Glen Road in West Belfast, waiting to pick up his 13 year old son.
The cold blooded execution was carried out by a lone gunman in front of hundreds of innocent school children and their parents.
The gun used in the assassination – believed to have been a handgun – has not yet been recovered.
Detective Chief Inspector Pete Montgomery from PSNI’s Major Investigation Team said:
“I have made a number of appeals to the public for information, issued CCTV footage and an evofit of the suspect since the lone gunman shot Mr Donegan just as hundreds of children were pouring out of the three schools – many of them witnessing the murder of the 43 year old father of two.
“Jim’s son was spared from this thankfully but only by a few seconds.
“I would continue to urge anyone who has any information, or who witnessed the murder, to contact the police on 101.
“Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
A number of men were arrested under the Terrorism Act over the murder but were later released unconditionally.
