Pensioner Murder Appeal

Emma Winnall

Police have asked the public for more help, three months since a 93 year old woman was attacked in her own home in Birmingham.

The daughter of Emma Winnall,  who was beaten as she slept in her flat on Pensby Close, Moseley has appealed to her killer to hand themselves in.

She had been put to bed on Monday 30th April, and was found with a fractured skull, a broken arm, and partially severed finger the next morning, Tuesday May 1st.

The pensioner died in hospital from her injuries four weeks later.

Two people were arrested in connection with the murder, but have now been released without charge.

Detectives were able to speak to the victim before she died in hospital and the information she gave them remains a part of the investigation.

30-40 police officers are involved in the case daily, but Detective Inspector Buck Rogers admits they do not understand why the attack took place:

“We are keeping very much an open mind on the whys, hows and wheres.

“It is an investigation that continues to go forward, and we are examining every motive and every piece of information, that comes into the investigation.”


Crimestoppers renewed their £10,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction.

Anyone with information can contact West Midlands Police on 101, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
