POSTERS appealing for information about the murder of Una Crown are being put up in Wisbech today as detectives continue the hunt for her killer.

The 86-year-old widow was found dead in her bungalow, in Magazine Lane, Wisbech, last Sunday.

A post-mortem revealed the widow had died from stab wounds to her neck and chest. Her clothing was also set on fire after her death in an apparent effort to hide her injuries and destroy evidence.

She was last seen on the morning of Friday, January 11, but had spoken to a friend by telephone at 5pm on the Saturday.

Independent charity Crimestoppers have put up a £10,000 reward for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for her murder.

Posters appealing for information are being put up around Wisbech and leaflets are being dropped through doors in the area of Magazine Lane.

Detective Chief Inspector Jon Hutchinson said: “We hope the reward will motivate someone to come forward with that crucial piece of information we need.”

The £10,000 reward can only be claimed by those who provide information to Crimestoppers directly on 0800 555 111 which leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Mrs Crown’s murder.

Anyone involved in the murder will not be eligible to claim any of the reward.

Anyone with information should call the Major Crime Unit on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
