Have your say

BBC programme Crimewatch will focus on a new development in the case of murdered mother-of-two Julie Pacey who was killed in her home in Grantham in 1994.

Lincolnshire Police officers have been working with programme makers to feature the investigation because a new development has come to light which could finally bring detectives closer to finding Julie’s killer.

Julie was found dead at her home in Longcliffe Road, Grantham, on the afternoon of September 26, 1994.

Detective Inspector Helen Evans, of EMSOU Major Crime and the Senior Investigating Officer in the case, said: “We have spent some time working with Crimewatch in relation to the Julie Pacey murder, which took place on September 26, 1994.

“A new development in the investigation, which came about as a result of our continuing review of what are known as ‘cold cases’, will be featured and we hope that it may lead to us being given some information that we have not previously received.

“We will be appealing to the public for that information within the programme. Footage from the original Crimewatch piece, which was filmed not long after Julie’s murder, will be used in the broadcast along with new footage explaining the development in the case. It is hoped that by reaching a large national audience new information may come to light that has not previously done so.”

Crimewatch will be shown on BBC One at 9pm tonight (Tuesday, July 28).
