Detectives working on an unsolved murder investigation dating back almost three decades believe a woman who called at the time may hold a vital clue to the investigation.

Peter Miller, who died as a result of a single stab wound to the chest, was 24 when his body was found in the kitchen of his home in Camden Place, Great Yarmouth, by his brother, Anthony Miller, at around 7.45pm on Sunday, December 9, 1984.

And on the anniversary of Mr Miller’s death officers working on the unsolved case would like to hear from a woman who rang Great Yarmouth police station on the morning of Sunday, December 30, 1984.

This woman claimed she had further information about the murder but would not leave any contact details. The caller specifically wanted to talk to a female officer about the case but refused to say anything more.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Durham, who is leading the inquiry for the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, today made a renewed appeal for information.

He said: “Although Peter’s murder was nearly 30 years ago, the case remains open and I am particularly eager to speak to this caller as I believe she may have vital information which could take this inquiry forward.

“She will know who she is, and I would strongly urge her to make contact with us again. I want to stress that any information given to the team is always treated in confidence.”

The investigation has been extensively highlighted by the EDP as part of the Norfolk Unsolved campaign – a ground-breaking news bid to catch major criminals which was launched earlier this year.

The campaign, being run in conjunction with Norfolk police, takes a renewed look at some of the county’s most serious unsolved cases in a bid to try to bring justice,
and ultimately closure, to those families who have lost loved ones – murdered, attacked or taken from them in the most horrific of circumstances.

Anyone with information about Mr Miller’s murder should call 101.
