Avon & Somerset Constabulary: Appeal for Assistance 



Regular readers of the NYE will remember that in our article “Christopher Halliwell: How Many Victims?”, Chris Clark and I covered the murder in 1984 of Shelley Morgan. Shelley is pictured above next to a photograph of the location where her body was found.

We were both pleased to read that Avon &Somerset Constabulary have used the thirty-fifth anniversary of her death to launch a new appeal for information. It appears to be based on new evidence. The Avon & Somerset Constabulary appeal is reproduced below.

Comment by the authors 

This murder is thirty five years old, but Avon & Somerset Constabulary are still doggedly pursuing it and generating new information. Its determination to see justice done for Shelley and her family is to be respected.

The NYE covered Shelley Morgan’s murder in this article below:

It is one of the murders for which we believe Christopher Halliwell should be considered a suspect. We will continue to follow this investigation.
