81-year-old Molly Morgan died after being mugged in Harrow. Her attacker was after the contents of her handbag which only contained a carrier bag, an umbrella and an electrical cable.

She fell to the ground, hitting her head and died in hospital the following day.

Mrs Morgan was an active and highly respected member of her local community and was killed for the worthless contents of her handbag; her family miss her dearly and cling to the hope that someone will now do the right thing and come forward as they continue to search for justice.

With the passage of time, people and loyalties change, and those who did not come forward at the time now have an opportunity to help solve this tragic case, search their conscience and do the right thing.

A substantial reward is available for information, this is a significant amount of money and this tragic anniversary is the right time to come forward.
