SIX killers are walking free today. And The Evening Star pledges to put its weight – and reward money – behind a new push to put the killers of Joan Albert, Vicky Hall, Karen Hales, Doris Shelley, Edna Harvey and Diane Jones behind bars.

Many months –in most cases years – have passed since the killers struck and still they walk free. They breathe the same air as we do, walk the same streets, sit next to us on the bus, in the office and maybe, even share our lives at home.

Our reward pledge of £1,000 for each case will go to anyone who helps bring about convictions of the brutal killers of these people who walk around with the false belief that they have escaped their fate.

Despite huge police investigations into every one of these murders, the killers have yet to be found.

For their families it is frustrating and bewildering that the culprits are still at large and have somehow managed to disappear into the melting pot of people in everyday life.
