£20k reward for information on Bucks woman's murder

25 years since a Buckinghamshire woman was killed, a new £10,000 reward is being offered for information.

Janet Brown, a mother of three and a nurse, was murdered at her home in Spriggs Holly Lane, Radnage, Buckinghamshire in 1995.

It is believed she was killed between 8.15pm and 10.15pm on Monday 10 April. 

The 51-year-old had been handcuffed, gagged and struck on the head several times.

She sadly died from severe head injuries. Her body was discovered on Tuesday 11 April 1995 by a builder and his son, who were due to do some work at her property. 

Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information the charity exclusively receives - either online at crimestoppers-uk.org or via freephone 0800 555 111 - that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for this murder

It adds to the reward already being offered by Thames Valley Police.

There was no evidence of a sexual assault and it has not been established whether this was a burglary gone wrong.

Annabelle Goodenough, South East Regional Manager at the charity Crimestoppers, said: 

"Janet Brown is described by her family as being a peaceful lady who loved nature and travelling. Her life was cruelly cut short by this terrible crime 25 years ago. Our charity would like to see justice for Janet and her family and hope that after all these years, maybe loyalties have changed or someone who knows something now feels able to finally do the right thing and tell us what they know. We believe that everybody has the right to be safe in the sanctuary of their own home.

"We are to offer this £10K alongside Thames Valley Police's reward to offer a combined reward of £20,000. We hope this will encourage anybody who can make a difference to come forward with information they may have, no matter how big or small they think it may be.  

"If you have any suspicions at all about who may be responsible for this crime, please do the right thing for Janet's family who desperately need answers. Nobody will ever know you contacted our charity, only you.  

"Crimestoppers has been taking crime information for over 32 years, since our charity began. We have always kept our promise of anonymity to the millions of people who have trusted us.
