The brother of a man who was murdered in his Great Yarmouth home 30 years ago today has issued an emotional plea for information on the anniversary of his death.

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, known as Tony, at around 7.45pm on Sunday, December 9, 1984.

And on the 30th anniversary of Mr Miller's death his brother has issued a renewed appeal over the case which is one of a number of investigations being looked at by Norfolk police's cold case team, which was set up in 2008 to investigate unsolved murders, missing people and serious sexual offences.

Mr Miller, 53, of Suffolk Road, Gorleston, said: 'I can't let the case go and need to keep pushing it to keep it in the public eye. We've never had a reason for why it happened..if we had we would have a good chance of finding out who.'

Mr Miller, who is convinced the answer to what happened lies locally, made a specific appeal to a woman who rang Great Yarmouth police station on the morning of Sunday, December 30, 1984 to get back in touch.

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.

The investigation was extensively highlighted by the EDP and sister papers last year as part of our Norfolk Unsolved campaign which, launched in conjunction with Norfolk police, took a fresh look at some of the county's most serious unsolved cases.
