Mum's call to catch killer's accomplice

THE mother of murdered fitness fanatic Dawn Walker has called on the police to reopen its investigation to catch her killer's accomplice.

THE mother of murdered fitness fanatic Dawn Walker has called on the police to reopen its investigation to catch her killer's accomplice.

Salesman Kevin Nunn, 48, was jailed for 22 years for the murder of 37-year-old Miss Walker and setting her body alight next to the River Lark near Bury St Edmunds in February 2005.

Miss Walker, of Fornham St Martin, had recently ended her two-year relationship with Nunn prior to her murder.

Throughout the trial it was claimed Nunn, formerly of Woolpit, had an accomplice, though a man accused of helping dispose of Miss Walker's body was acquitted during the case.

Suffolk police said it had no current lines of inquiry relating to the case.

But Miss Walker's mother Jean, who lives in Bury St Edmunds, is now urging the police to hunt down Nunn's accomplice with renewed vigour.
