Police have released fresh CCTV images of a murder victim from West Molesey in the hope it may lead to new information.

Six people have so far been arrested over the death of antiques dealer Robyn Mercer three years ago, but none have been charged.

The CCTV from outside the Lord Hotham Pub shows people who were in the area near where she was killed at a crucial time.

Her son and daughter have also released a series of never before seen pictures of their mother.

Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Colin Pirie from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team, said:

“This case remains an ongoing investigation for this force and we are as determined as ever to find those responsible for robbing a family of a loving and caring mother who was callously murdered outside her own property.

“Mrs Mercer was devoted to her son and daughter who have been through incredible emotional turmoil since her death. We need the public’s help to solve this case and allow her family to find some form of closure.

“Identifying the people in these images could be absolutely vital to this case. These people were in the area near to where Robyn was killed at a crucial time. I am appealing to the good nature of anyone in the area who may know these people to come forward and help us.

“These images were taken from CCTV outside of the Lord Hotham pub, which is now closed. These people could have been regulars or people that came in now and again. If you knew the pub or people that frequently went there, please share this with them.

“We know that someone out there knows what happened to Robyn and who killed her. We do not want her family to have to wait any longer to find out those answers. If you do have some information think about living the rest of your life with a clear conscience and do the right thing.”

We continue to urge anyone with information around the circumstances Robyn’s murder to call us on 101 or online at quoting Operation Zebu, no matter how small, it could really make a difference."

A £10,000 reward is available from the independent charity Crimestoppers which can be contacted anonymously via 0800 555 111.

The reward can only be claimed if the information is passed directly to the charity and leads to the person or people responsible for Robyn Mercer’s murder being arrested and charged.
