Kay O’Connor

On the afternoon of the 1st of March 1974 Kay O’Connor took a short walk to collect her mother’s pension from the sub post office on Butt Road in Colchester. She walked the 5 minutes back to her home on Wickham Road, entered the house and within the next hour and a half was brutally murdered and left on the kitchen floor in a pool of her own blood. A pane of glass in her kitchen door appeared to have been smashed from the outside but there was no sign of the killer and no one has ever been caught.
