A FRESH appeal on the 25th anniversary of an unsolved murder has been shared by West Mercia Police.

West Mercia Police have asked the public if they can help the Devon and Cornwall Police Constabulary with any information which may lead to the capture of whoever killed Linda 'Lyn' Bryant.

Linda was a mother of two, who was murdered in Ruan High Laneson The Roseland, in Cornwall, in 1998. She had been stabbed a number of times in a prolonged attack.

Her body was found in a field gateway between Ruan High Lanes Methodist Chapel and Treviles Manor. 

Detectives remain convinced that someone holds vital information that could help to apprehend her killer.

A substantial reward of £20,000 has been offered by the independent charity Crimestoppers for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the offender.

Only information passed through the charity will be eligible for the reward.

Detective inspector Rob Smith, senior investigating officer from the Force Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “For 25 years the family of Lyn Bryant have lived with this terrible loss and uncertainty. However, time has not diminished our commitment to bring the killer to justice and to give the family some peace.

“We know that 25 years is a long time but we remain convinced that someone knows what happened to Lyn and for some reason, they have never come forward.

"Allegiances may have changed with the passage of time and those who found it difficult to talk to police may now feel able. Now is the time to contact us.”
