THE brutal murder of a Rotherham schoolgirl features in a new book 50 years after the killing shocked the town.
The case of Anne Dunwell, who was abducted, sexually assaulted and murdered in 1964 is retold in Unsolved Murders in South Yorkshire — Real Life Cold Cases of the 19th and 20th Centuries by Scott Lomax.
True crime specialist Mr Lomax (30), has written books on the murder of Jill Dando and was a leading campaigner for the release of Barry George, who was wrongly accused of her murder.
He is urging people to help finally solve the mystery of Anne’s death.
“I have no doubt some of the murderers are still alive. Some may very well be living in South Yorkshire. My book should renew interest and remind people that they can still come forward with information,” he said.
The book can be ordered from the Pen and Sword Books website, Amazon or from bookshops, priced £12.99.
