VALERIE Graves’ family have made an emotional plea for new information to help catch her killer almost a year after she was murdered in Bosham.
The grandmother was brutally killed with a hammer in a property in Smugglers Lane which she was house sitting on December 29, 2013.
Almost exactly 12 months on, Valerie’s two children Tim Wood and Jemima Harrison have urged anyone with any information to come forward to help police finally put their mother’s killer behind bars.

And see this week’s Chichester Observer, which is out on Christmas Eve, to read the full story and history of a murder which still has the village of Bosham in shock.
