Police: £20k for Jewish pensioner murder leads

By Robyn Rosen, December 29, 2009

A £20,000 reward is being offered for information on the murder of a Jewish pensioner in Stamford Hill a year ago.

Eveline “Lina” Kelmenson, 83, was discovered by police with her legs bound by duct tape in the top-floor bedroom of her three-storey house in Leweston Place on January 1, 2009, after her niece raised the alarm.

Police have reissued an appeal for information and have released further details about items stolen from the house. These include a gold chain that Miss Kelmenson wore around her neck and a Russian gold wedding band which belonged to her grandmother.
