AN update on my hunT for Kevin Parle
The hunt for Kevin Parle
The Target - Kevin Parle
Kevin Parle is described by police as ‘extremely dangerous’. He remains wanted in connection with two separate murders, the shooting dead of 16-year-old Liam Kelly, in Liverpool in 2004, and the brutal slaying of 22-year-old mother of three, Lucy Hargreaves also in Liverpool, in August 2005. He has been on the run for over 15 years. Peter Bleksley wants to bring his time on the run to an end.

Hunting Britain’s Most Wanted Murderer
Armed only with a notepad, pen and mobile phone, author and former Scotland Yard detective and undercover cop, Peter Bleksley is on the hunt for Kevin Parle.
For more than fifteen years, the six-foot six-inch, broadly built, ginger-haired Parle has been wanted by the police for two murders. In the early hours of 19 June 2004, 16 -year-old Liam Kelly was lured to a location in Liverpool and shot dead. The following year, another Liverpudlian, 22-year-old mother of three, Lucy Hargreaves, was shot dead in her own home. Her partner and their 2-year-old daughter escaped after the house was set alight by leaping from a first-floor bedroom window.
How could Parle have evaded national and international crime investigators for so long? Who is harbouring him? Bleksley is determined to find the answers. Immersing himself in the world of serious and organised crime, he has vowed not to rest until Parle is found.
Two murders, one fugitive and a hunter tracking down the target. This is the gripping true story of hunting Britain’s most wanted murderer, and goes behind the scenes of the hit BBC Sounds Podcast, Manhunt: Finding Kevin Parle.
Hello Everyone, Please forgive the collective nature of this message, but because so many of you have been requesting an update on the hunt for Kevin Parle, I have had to send this message to you in this way, as to reply individually would take an age. I hope you can forgive me for this, but please rest assured, I am hugely grateful to you for your continued interest in the hunt for Kevin Parle. He will be found… Last month I gave an interview to Art Hostage on his podcast. You can view/listen to it below.

You can find the article here – https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/mum-shot-dead-slept-body-27334747 For me, the most interesting part of this article is a quote from Howard Rubbery of Merseyside Police, who said ‘Parle is still believed to be living outside
Peter’s life was changed forever when this briefing note for Operation Zulu Cricket was stolen from an unmarked police car. Soon afterwards Peter was parachuted into the witness protection programme, which ultimately led to a catastrophic mental health breakdown, and the end of his police career. Peter feels that the time is now right to release this report in full. All names have been changed except for Peter’s. You can read the full report here: https://peterbleksley.com/Op-ZC
When I launched my hunt for Kevin Parle in April 2019, I was armed with a pen, a notebook, my mobile phone, and a handful of flyers. As I handed these around a pub in Liverpool, many people said to me, ‘Kevin who? I’ve never heard of him.’ Now, nearly 22 months later, thanks to our hugely successful BBC podcast, ‘Manhunt; Finding Kevin Parle’, and my book, ‘Manhunt’, millions of people know his name, and are aware of the murders he is wanted for. Bless the souls of Liam and Lucy. Bit by bit, download by download, we are shrinking the world for Kevin Parle. However, none of this would have been achieved without the engagement and help from you, the wonderful public, wheresoever in the world you may be. You have contacted me in your droves with information, and whether that be detail from many years ago, or more
