    Default Murder in Liverpool circa 1973 / 74

    I am not sure if I am posting this in the right section, but apologies if I havent.
    Anyway what I am looking for is advice in researching a murder which took place in the Walton area of Liverpool about 1973/74, I recall a lad by the name of John noone or noonan was murdered and his body was found in stanley Park. John lived in City Road with his Grandma.

    I suspect the echo archives may have reports of this, but how do I access their archives? and does anybody else know where I may find articles relating to this. Sorry to sound like a 'Numpty' but I am new to this research, but would really appreciate some guidance.

    The Record Office on the 4th floor of the Central Library has all the local papers on microfilm.

    Thanks.. thats a start, but as I am unaware of the date ie it was either 73 74 or 75 would I have to systematically work through all of the newspaers from this time in hope of finding a report, or is there a more systematic approach to finding this information?

    Is there any way you can "search" on a paper? Or do you have to trawl through them all?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    There's no search facility, unfortunately.
    It's exactly the same as reading the original paper.
    Before you start looking through the papers, tell the staff what you're looking for - perhaps they have Court Records, or something similar.
