Fenland was shocked in the New Year by the brutal murder of Wisbech pensioner Una Crown.

The 86-year-old was stabbed and then set on fire in the hallway of her Magazine Lane home on January 12, 2013 in a killing that horrified people across the country.

The pensioner’s killer has still not been found, despite repeated appeals by the police, a televised appeal on Crimewatch and a £10,000 reward.

An appeal on the six-month anniversary of Mrs Crown’s death saw some “useful” calls made to police and several items were recovered on land in Walton Highway, but no arrests have been made.

Mrs Crown was discovered in her home by her niece’s husband, who was there to collect her for lunch. It was thought she was killed between 5pm and 10pm on Saturday, January 12. Police believe she was likely killed by someone she knew, as she opened the door to her attacker.

Several items, including a gold wedding ring, were found to be missing from the home.
