A fresh appeal for information into the murder of Wisbech pensioner Una Crown has resulted in a number of calls.

Detectives put out a fresh appeal for information into Mrs Crown’s death last week.

The body of 86-year-old Mrs Crown was discovered in her bungalow in Magazine Lane on Sunday, January 13, 2013.

She had not been seen alive since Friday, January 11, but had spoken to a friend over the phone at about 5pm on the Saturday, the day before she was discovered by police.

A post-mortem examination revealed she died as a result of stab wounds to her neck and chest. Her body was then set on fire in an apparent attempt to disguise her injuries and destroy evidence.

A spokesman said: “We have received a couple of calls relating to the investigation, however we continue to appeal for those who may know what happened to Mrs Crown that day to contact us.”
