ENGLISH NEWS: Two pensioners arrested over cold case murder in England

MURDERED: The body of Carol Morgan was found at a shop she owned in in Bedfordshire, England, in 1981.

TWO pensioners have been arrested following an investigation into the murder of a woman 38 years ago in Bedfordshire, England.

On Wednesday (November 27), officers from Bedfordshire Police arrested a 69-year-old man and a 70-year-old woman in Brighton, England, on suspicion of murdering 36-year-old Carol Morgan in 1981.

The body of the woman was found at Morgan’s Store in Linslade, near Leighton Buzzard, where she was repeatedly struck with an sharp and heavy instrument, according to a Freedom of Information request. Despite a wide-ranging investigation and a number of arrests, no-one was charged at the time.

Detective Inspector Jerry Waite from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, has released a statement which said:

“A number of arrests were made at the time of Carol’s death, however no charges were ever brought. 

“Our Cold Case Unit reviews every undetected murder every two years, and Carol’s case is no exception.

 “This goes to show that no murder investigation is ever closed and we will explore all opportunities available, even as much as 38 years later.”

We at Euro Weekly News understand that the police will be carrying out additional work in the vicinity of the shop and also in Brighton.
