A RETIRED policeman has called for a murder investigation to reopen more than 30 years after a young woman was stabbed.

Michael Saunders, 63, said he didn’t want police to forget the killing of Alison Morris, who was stabbed multiple times near her home in Ramsey in 1979.

The trainee teacher was attacked as she walked down a footpath to the river Stour 250 yards from her house in Wrabness Road. It was September 1 and she was 25-years-old.

Gordon Waller who was leading the investigation at the time, described it as “one of the most horrendous and brutal murders to take place within the last 30 years.”
