If there is no CCTV, and if the murderer does not hand themselves in, I doubt this crime will ever be solved.

The bastards that murdered this woman should be brought to trial and given the maximum sentence.

Poor woman - what terrible final minutes. I hope the CCTV is sufficient to get the bastard who killed her locked away for a very long time.
