The family of murdered pub landlord George Wilson of spoken of their anguish as his killer remains a mystery 50 years after his death.
Nottinghamshire Police have launched a fresh appeal for information about the murder, which took place in an alleyway outside the Fox & Grapes pub which he ran with his wife, Betty.
In a statement released today, George’s daughter Margaret, who was six at the time of the murder, and son David, who was 10, said:
Every time there is an appeal we hope there is going to be something new, or that someone will genuinely come forward and tell the police what happened.
Our mother died in 1997, without ever knowing who did this or why. No motive has ever been established. Over the years Mum was able to talk about what happened to Dad, and she re-lived it a lot.
Whoever did this robbed us of our Dad. We would really like to know who did this for our own peace of mind, even if the offender is dead.
Many years have passed, but if you know who did it, or have any new information, please speak to the police and give us some closure.
