Operation Markdown - Murder of CAROL MORGAN

Detectives investigating the 40-year-old cold-case murder of Carol Morgan near Leighton Buzzard have arrested two people.


Details of Incident

Detectives investigating a 40-year-old cold-case murder of a woman near Leighton Buzzard have arrested two people.
Carol Morgan’s body was found at Morgan’s Store in Finch Crescent, Linslade, on 13 August 1981. She was 36 years old at the time.
A 70-year-old man and a 72-year-old woman from Brighton have been arrested on suspicion of her murder and conspiracy to murder.

Can you help a Bedfordshire Police Major Crime Unit investigation?

Detectives are trying to trace three women who lived in the Linslade area in 1981?

Diane Porter and Suzanne Williams may have important information that will assist detectives looking into a historical case - but it is important to state that neither person is suspected of any involvement in the matter.

Diane and Suzanne may well have married and changed their names, or moved out of the area since 1981.

A third person detectives would like to locate is a Sophia Hedges, who in the years since Carol’s death, may have had the surnames Macdonald and Pick. We understand that Sophia is likely to have emigrated to Canada.
