Mark Haddock is a former RUC and PSNI Special Branch informant within the UVF. He is the main suspect in the murder of Raymond McCord Jr.[1]

Haddock is the subject of an investigative report by former Police Ombudsman Nuala O'Loan, in which he is described as "informant 1".[2]

The report found that intelligence reports, most of which were rated as 'reliable and probably true' linked Informant 1 to ten murders:

  • Mr Peter McTasney who died on 24 February 1991;
  • Ms Sharon McKenna who died on 17 January 1993;
  • Mr Sean McParland who was attacked on 17 February 1994, and died on 25 February 1994;
  • Mr Gary Convie who died on 17 May 1994;
  • Mr Eamon Fox who died on 17 May 1994, in the same attack as Mr Gary Convie;
  • Mr Gerald Brady who died on 17 June 1994;
  • Mr Thomas Sheppard who died on 21 March 1996;
  • Mr John Harbinson who died on 18 May 1997;
  • Mr Raymond McCord Junior who died on 09 November 1997
  • Mr Thomas English who died on 31 October 2000.

Less reliable intelligence suggested links to another five murders.[3]
