DE­TEC­TIVES are of­fer­ing a £50,000 re­ward to catch a man who stran­gled a 14-year-old school­girl to death 34 years ago.

Lisa Hes­sion was walk­ing home from a friend’s party when she was TRAGIC Lisa Hes­sion was stran­gled at­tacked on De­cem­ber 8, 1984, 100 yards from her home in Leigh, Gtr Manch­ester. A dog walker found her body at 10.30pm in an al­ley­way.

One man was ar­rested, then bailed, and no fur­ther ac­tion was taken against him. He died in 2005, but “re­mains of in­ter­est” to of­fi­cers. Head of Greater Manch­ester Po­lice’s cold case unit, Martin Bot­tom­ley, said: “Some­one out there knows who mur­dered Lisa.

“Foren­sic tech­niques are im­prov­ing all the time and we need that some­one to give us a name, which can… lead us to the killer. We owe it to Lisa’s mem­ory and her late mum.” Her mum, Chris­tine Hes­sion, died of cancer at age 69 in 2016.

Po­lice are look­ing into a man, then aged 18-20, who at­tacked three other girls in Leigh be­fore Lisa died.
