‰Murdered

At about 1.30 p.m. on Wednesday 26 July 2000, the body of Kathleen Durdin, aged 91, was located at her home in Gilbert Street, Hamley Bridge. She was located by a relative who had attended at the request of a ‰Û÷Meals on Wheels‰’ volunteer who had been unable to raise Mrs Durdin.

Mrs Durdin was a reasonably healthy pensioner who had resided at this address for over 40 years. She was an independent person who was well known throughout the local community.  Mrs Durdin was known to be always immaculately dressed.

Mrs Durdin was apparently a security conscious person. There were no signs of forced entry to the house and nothing had been identified as stolen.

Investigations established that Mrs Durdin was violently assaulted and died in her home as a result of multiple blunt force trauma to her head.
