The Irish Sun, 4 April 2006:
30-year murder mystery
Loyalists killed forestry worker Seamus Ludlow 30 years ago by MISTAKE, gardai say.
It is the latest conclusion in a case that has remained unsolved and baffled detectives.
A senior officer, appointed last week to re-examine the case, says a four-man gang crossed the border to search for an IRA man on the run in Dundalk.
But they apparently stumbled across the unfortunate Seamus, 47, who looked like their target - and shot him three times.
Last year a second inquest into his death returned a verdict of unlawful killing.
It revealed that in 1979 gardai knew names of the alleged kilers. They were not arrested until 1998,. when no charges were brought.
Mr Ludlow's family believe the new probe "is a stalling tactic".
They want a public inquiry into his murder.
