Main article content
Detectives investigating the death of a woman more than four decades ago have arrested two people on suspicion of conspiracy to murder. On 13 August 1981, Carol Morgan’s body was found at Morgan’s Store in Finch Crescent, Linslade. She was only 36 years old at the time.
An investigation into the death of Mrs Morgan was launched by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit in 2018.
Today (Tuesday), a man and a woman in their 70s from Brighton were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and are currently in police custody for questioning.
Detective Superintendent Carl Foster, leading the investigation, said: “We launched a murder investigation into the cold case of Carol Morgan over five years ago.
“My team have worked relentlessly to piece together the events that led to her untimely death and have explored investigative opportunities available to us in the time that's passed since the 1980s.
“I want to thank our community for supporting the investigation. Our cold case unit continues to review every unsolved murder and no murder investigation is ever closed.”
