For no particular reason I decided to Google Andrea Hedger again this evening. Imagine my suprised when a load of newspaper archives popped up giving all the details of the murder at that time. Massively interesting stuff to read as an adult - having gone through it so personally as a child. Of particular interest were the judges comments about the treatment Robert could expect to receive in prison (basically saying that given his disgusting crimes, he would deserve anything that he happened to him). Calls were made to have the judge discplined because of his 'gut reaction' comments.

Was surprised to read that before Andrea was murdered a number of children had been sexually assaulted in the preceding weeks.

Interesting stuff if you have a spare hour.

I've recently been looking at both the Evening Times and (as it was then named) Glasgow Herald archives from around when I was born in November 1973. There appears to have been a murder of a seven year old boy at the end of October 1973 which led to a seventeen year old male youth being charged with murder. Looking and searching as well as I can I can't seem to obtain any information further to the second court appearance of the accused. I'm not usually interested in such matters as they have such a personal affect on those involved but it being around the time I was born it has caught my attention.

As the poor kid that was murdered would now be a couple of years from hitting fifty I am not sure to name him as there may be family members who are members of this forum. Similarly there was a murder involving the death of a suspected peadophile in the Aberdeen area where the victim had the same unusually spelled surname - though not first name - as the accused in the case I read about. Furthermore he was the same age s the guy would have been.

The point of my long winded post is that is it a good idea to post the details and see if someone can help? If not then I will delete this.

Another one that sticks in the mind was in Castlemilk in the early 90's of the wee girl who was sent to a neighbours house with a teddybear full of heroin (unknown to the girl), she was obviously bein watched and was murdered and the drugs stolen.

The "drug courier/teddy bear" was just the rumour-mill stories attached to true crime of Christine Lee's murder in 1990. I was living in Castlemilk then and was quite affected by the case. I can't find any info online but I believe the murderer was a 19 year old with learning difficulties (John Dowling) and that she had been raped (possibly sodomised too). I often think of her and have thought about going the library to research the case as my parents (I assume trying to protect me from gory details???) wouldn't allow me to read the paper or ask an questions about it. I often wonder if her murderer is now free?

Does anyone have any info on another child murder in Castlemilk. I believe it was in 1967 and was a little 8 year old girl found strangled in a close. Possibly named Catherine Larkin. It was well before I was born but I vaguely remember it being mentioned at the time of Christine's murder.

I hadn't heard of Andrea's murder before but I will have a read about it, Isn't it both incredible and very sad how the victims are forgotten and that all the hysteria around paedophiles prevents us being able to better protect today's children :(

Just saw this old post from 2006. Can clarify tervet was not any kind of relation to Andrea Hedger and never returned to Scotland. He was released from Prison around 1998 and is now deceased.
