JOAN ALBERT – This is the most recent of the horrifying murders of which someone has yet to be convicted.

Almost five months since the frail 79-year-old was found brutally stabbed to death in her Boydlands home in Capel St Mary, the killer is still at large.

But the incident room is still open on the case and police are continually following up lines of information from the hundreds of calls that have been received.

Around 20 people were originally drafted in to work on the case but now as the investigation gets stepped up further around 30 officers are following up inquiries.
