Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

COPS in­ves­ti­gat­ing the un­solved mur­der of a great-grand­mother have ap­pealed for an anony­mous caller to get in touch.

South Yorks Po­lice said they be­lieve the man may have info that could help solve the mur­der of Nora Tait ( above), 69.

Det Ch Insp Craig Robin­son also said he was still keen to trace a door-to-door food sales­man, known lo­cally as “knock-off lad”, and ap­pealed for the au­thor of a cryptic Christ­mas card re­ceived by po­lice in 2009 to come for­ward.

Mrs Tait was found dead with her skull bashed in at her home in Hex­thorpe, Don­caster, on Oc­to­ber 13, 2005.

It’s be­lieved she was killed the pre­vi­ous day af­ter go­ing to a nearby take­away to buy fish and chips, which lay un­touched in her home.

Mr Robin­son said: “I hope this ap­peal will re­sult in new in­for­ma­tion to solve this mur­der.”
