East Yorkshire grandmother murder to be re-investigated

Winnie Deighton

15 years after her death the murder of an East Yorkshire grandmother is going to be re-investigated.

59-year-old Winnie Deighton was found dying near her home in Bridlington in June 1997. She had been kicked in the head, suffered brain damage, before being dragged, sexually assaulted and strangled.

Police investigating the murder believe her killer is local and are focusing their enquiries around Bridlington's West Hill estate. They have DNA evidence from the crime scene and are hoping advances in technology will help find her killer. They also hope that it being 15 years since it happened people's memories will be triggered.
