DETECTIVES investigating the murder of Una Crown of Wisbech will appeal for help to catch her killer on Crimewatch.
A reconstruction of the 86-year-old’s last-known movements will be shown on the programme which will be aired on BBC1 at 9pm tonight (Monday).
It will include an interview with Mrs Crown’s niece and nephew, John and Judy Payne.
Mrs Crown’s body was discovered in her bungalow in Magazine Lane on January 13.
She had been stabbed and then set on fire in an apparent effort to disguise her injuries and destroy evidence.
