The boys were in a 45-strong party of pupils and teachers from Launceston community college on a week-long trip to Brittany when the tragedy happened on 18 July. Caroline, 13, was raped and suffocated in a hostel in the town of Pleine-Fougeres. A Devon and Cornwall police source has said the boys were being treated as witnesses, not suspects. All the children on the trip will now be reinterviewed.Reuse content
The five boys on the French school trip on which the schoolgirl Caroline Dickinson was murdered were yesterday taken to a police station to give DNA samples, said a source close to the investigation. The youngsters arrived at the station in Launceston, Cornwall, Caroline's home town, in three unmarked vehicles and left two hours later.
