Martha Campbell Shot Dead on 14th May 1972
Martha Ann Campbell, a 13-year old Catholic schoolgirl, lived with her mother, Elizabeth and father Oliver in the family home at 71 Ballymurphy Road, Belfast. Martha was one of eight brothers and sisters, namely Anthony (‘Tony’), 14 years, Oliver 11 years, Brian 10 years, Eilish 7 years, Ann 6 years, Thomas 5 years and Teresa 4 years. Tony Campbell is the family point of contact.
Almost 50yesrs on the Campbell family have still not got Justice for the murder of Martha. We now finally know the truth with the help of Paper Trail Confirming that the 1st Kings Regiment were responsible:
- They were the only ones shooting at the time Martha was shot
- Logs show that they were positioned in Moyard where they could see the area where Martha was shot
- Logs also show that 1Kings were firing into the area were Martha was shot at the time Martha was shot
- Logs show that 1Kings were not being fired upon thus not returning any fire from other groups
It is evident that there has been a cover up at the highest level to prevent us from knowing the truth, it is now time for those involved to own up and allow Marthas love ones to gain closure.
