Police release murder suspect DVD

Man at cash point
The man used Mrs Edmonds' cash card only a few miles from her home

Detectives investigating the murder of a 77-year-old woman who was tortured and bludgeoned to death in her home have released DVD footage of a suspect.

Georgina Edmonds' body was discovered by her son at her home in Kiln Lane, Brambridge, Hampshire, on 11 January.

DVD footage shows a man in a florescent jacket using Mrs Edmonds' cash card at 2340 GMT at the Tesco Express, in Twyford Road, on the day of the murder.

The disc will be played on TVs in the post office in Eastleigh town centre.

The DVD also features e-fits of men seen in the area on the day of the murder, who have not yet been traced.

Det Ch Insp Paul Barton said: "I must stress that these people could well be witnesses or just people in the area on the day of the murder, but we need to identify them in order to eliminate them from the inquiry.

"We are still urging people to come forward with information about the murder, and in particular information about the man who used Mrs Edmonds' cash card.

A 5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the capture of the killer.

Post-mortem tests revealed Mrs Edmonds died of extensive head injuries and had been tortured by her killers.

No-one has been charged with her killing.
