Luton polygraph test could help police with a recent case of attempted murder. A 26-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. The alleged attack took place after QPR’s home clash against Luton Town. Police discovered a 52-year-old man with a severe head injury. The man was found at 9.50pm on Friday, near the Uxbridge Road junction in west London.
The victim, Brian Rourke, who is from Luton, was taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service. His family have been informed that he currently remains in a life-threatening condition. The suspect remains in custody while the investigation is ongoing. Police are urging anyone who may have either witnessed the alleged incident or any kind of fighting after the game to come forward. Luton have since issued a statement, which read: “The thoughts of everyone at Kenilworth Road are with Brian Rourke and his family at this incredibly worrying time. “When a member of the Luton Town family is ill or injured, it affects us all. Brian is known as a faithful supporter and we are praying that he makes a full recovery.
How could a polygraph test help in this case?
Police can arrest a suspect if they feel they have the just cause to do so. With the use of polygraph technology, police can get an accurate judgement on if a suspect is guilty or not. This means that more suspects could be stopped before potentially causing harm, or breaking the law. In this case, a polygraph would offer police a profile of the suspect and whether he is guilty or not. A polygraph can also help decide if a suspect had planned to carry out an action, or is a potential threat to the victim in the case. With polygraphs now becoming a term of release for sex offenders and being introduced to terrorism screening systems, it is only a matter of time before police also use lie detectors as part of their interrogation methods.
