Fam­ily let­ter to help catch cab­bie killer

Sunday Mirror - - KHAN SAIRA - BY STEPHEN HAY­WARD

THE dev­as­tated daugh­ter of a mur­dered cab­bie has writ­ten an open let­ter to his “bar­baric” killer.

The ap­peal came on the sec­ond an­niver­sary of Carl O’Brien’s death, as po­lice re­newed a £20,000 re­ward to help get a con­vic­tion.

Dad-of-two Carl, 55, was at­tacked out­side his home in Walling­ton, South Lon­don, two years ago. He died from his head in­juries.

His fam­ily was joined by mur­der squad de­tec­tives hand­ing out the let­ter to shop­pers and com­muters.

In it, daugh­ter Laura says: “He was the best dad – gen­tle, kind and a good role model.

“You left him for dead. You ran away like the cow­ard you are. If your aim was to cause heart­break, dev­as­ta­tion and mis­ery, you achieved this aim.”
