Whilst many years have passed, the memory of what happened to my vulnerable mum hasn’t gone. She was treated as if she wasn’t human and brutalised in the most sickening way.
“She trusted anyone who showed her interest and they abused that trust in the most sickening way.
“Someone in the community must know what happened to Pat and has sat on this secret for decades. We are appealing to your better nature. With our reward through Crimestoppers still available for the next 85 days, there’s still time for you to do the right thing, to tell the truth, and help us get answers.”
My mum Patricia Grainger was 25 years old when she was brutally attacked and murdered in the Parson Cross estate,
Her body was found on Sunday 10 August 1997 at Hartley Brook Dike.
My mum had learning disabilities and the week prior to her murder she was missing from home her whereabouts are still unknown during the week prior to her body being discovered.
She was found semi-naked in a stream and hidden under a divan bed base
Her body was discovered by a group of children as they walked in the area known locally as “The Brook”, which backs on to the rear of houses on Deerlands Avenue.
