West Midlands Police have this morning (7th June 2011) issued another statement on the ongoing investigation into the awful murder of Albion Road pensioner Daisy Myring. It’s critical that we nail these people. So far, police have had little information from the public. If the murderers are to be brought to justice, people with information need to come forward. Think about it, it could be your old girl next.
Murder Update-Family Appeal For Information
7 June 2011
Police investigating the murder of Daisy Myring at her home in Albion Road, Brownhills on May 31, have today made a direct appeal for her killer or killers to hand themselves in.
A/DCI Wayne Jones, who is heading the enquiry into Daisy’s death, also appealed for anyone in the local community with any information to come forward and speak to police.
Enquiries into the murder are ongoing. Three people have been arrested in connection with the incident and released on bail, but A/DCI Jones has made it clear the enquiry is still very much ongoing.
He said: “We need people to come forward with any information they have, no matter how insignificant they think it is. This was an horrendous attack on a frail 92 year old woman in her own home.”
A/DCI Jones added that police did not think that the incident was an attempt burglary and stressed that break-ins in the local area were rare.
Daisy’s grandson, David Worrall paid tribute to his grandmother and also issued an appeal for help in tracing the person(s) responsible for the attack.
He said: “Seven days ago my grandmother, Daisy Myring, the kindest, most caring of elderly ladies, was killed in her own home.
She was a loving mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and auntie to a large family.
To her credit, and with our blessing, although she was 92, partially blind and frail, she had decided to live alone in her own home.
Despite her age, she would always try to help anyone and was always there for advice.
She obviously had no enemies and there was no-one that she came in contact with that would not have liked her or been affected by her kind nature and positive attitude.
We all obviously miss her dearly and need help in catching her killer or killers so we can have a semblance of closure from this personal nightmare.
Somebody somewhere knows who committed this senseless, horrible murder and we desperately need help in bringing them to justice.
We would ask that you put yourself in our position and imagine it’s one of your relatives.
We need everyone’s help and if you know anything, no matter how small or insignificant it might seem, to contact the police immediately.
Daisy was last seen alive at 8pm on 30 May and was found with her injuries at 7am on 31 May.
