The mother of a teenage girl murdered 20 years ago has made

:00:10.:00:13.

a fresh appeal for help to find her killer.

:00:14.:00:15.

14-year-old Caroline Glachan was found dead on the banks

:00:16.:00:18.

of the River Leven in Dunbartonshire in August 1996, about a mile

:00:19.:00:20.

Despite numerous appeals, no-one has been arrested over her death.

:00:21.:00:26.

Here is our Home Affairs Correspondent, Reevel Alderson.

:00:27.:00:30.

No-one has ever been arrested over the murder of 14-year-old

:00:31.:00:32.

Caroline Glachan 20 years ago this weekend, but 300

:00:33.:00:34.

items gathered by police at the time of her death are now

:00:35.:00:39.

being re-examined by forensic scientists, in a

:00:40.:00:41.

cold case, giving her mother renewed hope after years of turmoil.

:00:42.:00:49.

I am more upbeat about it than I have been for a long time,

:00:50.:00:57.

That has given me real hope that there could be a light

:00:58.:01:02.

:01:13.:01:14.

:01:19.:01:21.

I feels like I could have stopped it,

:01:22.:01:27.

We do not trust a lot of people in this community.

:02:00.:02:02.

There have been a lot of assumptions made, that Caroline

:02:03.:02:06.

:02:07.:02:09.

alcohol, boyfriends, girlfriends,etc, but,

alcohol, boyfriends, girlfriends, etc, but,

:02:14.:02:14.
