Suzanne Kay Poll
During the evening of Thursday, 29 April 1993, Suzanne Poll, aged 36 years, was working at the Sands & McDougall Shop, John Street, Salisbury, adjacent to the Parabanks Shopping Centre. At 9.00 p.m., around closing time, she was murdered as the result of a vicious knife attack.
A number of witnesses have provided information which suggested the offender may have had a cut or a tattoo around one of his eyes and was possibly wearing an army coat at the time.
An unknown DNA profile has been located at the scene which is believed to be the offenders.
A person of interest seen in the vicinity of the shop at about the time of the murder has never been identified. An identikit of the man sought has had wide publicity over the years (see below).
The suspect is described as: male, early twenties to early thirties, 5’8″-5’10” (172-177 cm), stocky build, scruffy messy unbrushed at least collar length dark hair, wearing dark wrap around sunglasses, army style coat or jacket that is either khaki or black or dark grey in colour to the knees with epaulettes and a belt stitched in the back with four large pockets in the front and size 11 which are either Lynx or Front Runner brand possibly with vertical stripes on the sides and metallic buckles as lace keepers shoes.
The national DNA database is regularly searched to attempt to identify the unknown male’s DNA and Interpol has the profile for reference but as yet no match has been made.
