World's End murder bid.

ONE of Scotland's most baffling murders is to be put under the microscope by a crack team of cops.

The killers of 17-year-old school friends Christine Eadie and Helen Scott have never been traced.

Their battered bodies were found on the outskirts of Edinburgh in 1977.

Both girls had been strangled and raped.

The genetic fingerprint of one of the killers was discovered but detectives failed to find a match with samples taken from the girls' clothing.

Now the horrific double murder case, dubbed the World's End killings, is to be reviewed by Detective Superintendent Roger Orr and a team of CID staff.

A spokesman for Lothian and Borders Police said: "We never close unsolved murder inquiries and would not give up on a case like this.

"It remains one of the most high-profile cases the force has ever had."
