Tomorrow marks 20 years since the murder of Paul Savage, who was killed while working on his round as a postman in Mold.

On 4th February 2003, the 30-year-old father of one was making his rounds in Mold.

At 7.15am that morning, Paul was repeatedly hit over the head with a blunt object.

Paul was found lying in the driveway of one of the houses on his rounds.

Despite extensive police investigations, no one has ever been convicted of his murder.

In support of the investigation and to help bring the case to a conclusion, charity Crimestoppers has renewed a cash reward offer of £20,000 for information that leads to the conviction of those responsible.

Detective Inspector Myfanwy Kirkwood stated that the police still believe that someone out there holds vital information that could help bring the investigation to a positive conclusion.

She reassured the public that any information received will be treated confidentially.

Detective Inspector Kirkwood said: “We are thinking of Paul’s family today, who have still not had the closure that they deserve, and justice has not been brought for Paul’s death.”

“We believe that there is someone, or some people out there with vital information that would help us to bring this investigation to a positive conclusion.”

“I understand that people may feel reluctant to come forward after so many years, but I give reassurance that any information received will be treated confidentially and we are only interested in securing information that will assist in this investigation.”

“No unsolved case is ever closed, and anyone with any new and substantial evidence to provide is asked to come forward.”

Gary Murray from Crimestoppers said that the charity is keen to support the police by offering up to £20,000 for information received anonymously that leads to a conviction.

He said: “Every day we hear from people who tell us how difficult it is to speak up about crime, especially if it’s about people who you may be close to via family and friends.”

“This is a terribly sad case and our charity is keen to support the police by offering up to £20,000 for information we receive anonymously that leads to a conviction.”

“Remember, that with Crimestoppers, we never ask for or store any of your personal details such as your name or contact number.”

“All we ask if that you tell us what you know so that we can pass that on for you and allow justice for Paul and his loving family.”

With Crimestoppers, personal details such as names and contact numbers are never asked for or stored.

Anyone with information about the case can contact the police via their website or by calling 101.

Alternatively, they can fill out Crimestoppers’ anonymous online form or call their freephone number 0800 555 111.
