Fifty years after the brutal murder of a Nottinghamshire pub landlord, police are launching a fresh appeal for information to try to track down the killer.
George Wilson died aged 41 while taking his dog Blackie for their usual evening walk after closing up the Fox & Grapes pub in Southwell Road, Sneinton, on September 8, 1963.
Twenty minutes after he left, at around 12.50am, his wife Betty heard Blackie barking in the alleyway next to the pub. When she went outside to investigate, she found him lying facedown on the ground with 13 stab wounds to his face, neck, head and back.
He died at the scene - and officers still have no clue what the motive was for the attack.
