Po­lice re­ceive more in­for­ma­tion on mur­der

Cambridge Edition - - WHAT’S ON - PO­LICE RE­PORT

Po­lice have re­ceived a num­ber of calls in re­la­tion to the mur­der of Roma Joseph, who died in a house fire in Ti­rau in May.

In the early hours of May 1, 2017, a blaze broke out on the left hand side liv­ing area of Joseph’s two bed­room rental home on Lit­tle Street.

The 58-year-old grand­mother was se­ri­ously as­saulted be­fore the fire was lit in the liv­ing area of her house be­tween 3 and 3.30am on May 1.

On Au­gust 31, Po­lice Ten 7 ap­pealed to the pub­lic ask­ing if they had seen a person walk­ing past the Cal­tex Ser­vice Sta­tion around Mon­day, May 1.

Area Man­ager of In­ves­ti­ga­tions, Taupo, De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Matt Cran­shaw, said po­lice had re­ceived a num­ber of calls re­lat­ing to the CCTV ser­vice sta­tion footage, as well as in­for­ma­tion in re­la­tion to other as­pects of the case.

‘‘All of these calls have been ex­tremely help­ful to our in­ves­ti­ga­tion,’’ Cran­shaw said.

‘‘It just goes to show that al­most five months down the track peo­ple still have in­for­ma­tion of value about the en­quiry.’’

He en­cour­aged any­one who may have in­for­ma­tion that could help - no mat­ter how mi­nor it may seem - to con­tact po­lice.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to the case can call 0800 766 211.

Roma Joseph’s daugh­ter Kirsty Joseph wants those who killed her mother to come for­ward to help her move on.
