Gardaí have asked the French authorities to help investigate a potential new lead in the murder of French TV producer Sophie Toscan du Plantier.

The new information was passed to gardaí by the Oscar-nominated film director Jim Sheridan, who made Murder at the Cottage: The Search for Justice for Sophie, one of two recently released documentaries about the crime.

The information came from Marie Farrell, a former Schull shopkeeper, once the garda’s key witness whose evidence was later discredited.
