A RENEWED plea has been made by members of a Facebook group, to bring Doreen Morris killer to justice.

Six months since BBC Ones Crimewatch screened a reconstruction of the widows death, members of the social networking group want the 16 year old murder brought back into the public eye. Despite the TV appeal and a six week campaign in the Mail, police seem to be no closer to bringing the killer or killers to justice. Doreen Morris badly burnt remains were discovered at her home on Mill Lane, Holyhead, during the early hours of Friday, March 25, 1994. The 64-year-old grandmother was attacked and killed before her house was ransacked and set alight. Police believe the tragedy was a burglary which went wrong and a bloodstained fork found near Doreen’s body was the murder weapon. On the Justice for Doreen Morris Facebook page John Rowlands called on fellow members to raise the sites profile. Mr Rowlands said: It has been six months since BBC1 Crimewatch appealed to anyone with information on the murder of Doreen Morris to come forward. The site Justice for Doreen Morris was set up shortly after. Sadly the case has still not been solved and the person or persons responsible have not been bought to justice. I am appealing to everyone to raise the profile of this site in a effort to gain justice. The people of Holyhead are the best you can ever hope for, we have had justice for Leon Jones, we now need justice for Doreen. We can not and will not rest until the case is finally solved. Pray that no member of your family ever receives the same fate as Doreen did over 16 years ago. Doreen’s daughter Audrey Fraser said: I am aware of the message. I am a member of the group and have received and read it. I have been on the site quite a bit talking to people about the murder.I would like to thank John for doing this and ting up the website in the first place.I think progress has been made and through this site people hopefully the veil of secrecy will fall.
