THE family of murdered pensioner Edith Stuart will appear on television tonight in a desperate bid to catch her killer.

The 96-year-old’s daughters – Shirley Fish, from Poulton and Jean Worgan – will tell BBC’s Crimewatch about the tragic night their mother’s bed was set on fire as she slept at Cleveleys Park Rest Home in Cleveleys.

Police launched a murder investigation following the fatal fire on October 18 last year.

But her killer has yet to be brought to justice.

Mrs Worgan, 67, from Northhampton, said: “We found it difficult, but we hope someone says something after watching it.

“Someone must know. Maybe a relative or friend has noticed something – a change in someone, maybe they’ve changed their attitudes or ways.

“Surely they couldn’t do such a terrible thing and not feel it or show it.

“Hopefully people will contact the police with more information.”
