Greater Manchester Police have offered a £50,000 reward to anyone who can provide information that helps them catch a murderer who killed a 14-year-old girl in 1984.

Lisa Hession was strangled in Leigh just 100 yards from her home in Bonnywell Road on her way home from a house party, her body was discovered by a dog walker on Rugby Road.

A full investigation into her murder took place, but sadly Lisa’s attacker was never found.

Head of the Cold Case Unit Martin Bottomley, said: “This case has been subject to a number of reviews since 1984, so that we can find the answers Lisa’s family so desperately deserve.

“The reviews have concentrated on using advances in forensic techniques and investigating all the information we have received from members of the public so far.

“While we have not found the answers yet, this case will remain open until Lisa’s killer is found and brought to justice.

“Even though this happened 33 years ago, I’m sure that someone who lived in the area at the time will know something that could help our investigation.

“Anything you know, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could be the key to uncovering who is responsible for Lisa’s death.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact 0161 856 5961 or make a report, anonymously, through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
