A $350,000 reward is on offer to solve the death of Sydney great-grandmother Jean Harrison, who was found seriously injured on a road five years ago.
A $350,000 reward is being offered by NSW Police for any information which will help solve the 2015 cold-case death of grandmother Jean Harrison (pictured)
The 83-year-old was found with multiple fractures and cuts to the back of her neck and arm at an intersection at Miller in southwest Sydney on the morning of February 17, 2015.
She was unable to speak when she was found so she could not tell police what had happened, and died the next morning in hospital, surrounded by family.
The reward will be paid for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for Mrs Harrison’s death, NSW Police said in a statement on Monday.
Police said Mrs Harrison’s injuries were consistent with having been hit by a car but they are not ruling out other possibilities.
The grandmother of 21 and great-grandmother of 28 suffered fractures to her skull, ribs and pelvis as well as a serious leg injury and internal bleeding.
Mrs Harrison had celebrated her 83rd birthday just days before and she was on her way home after enjoying tea with friends at a local cafe when she was killed.
In the days after Mrs Harrison’s death her devastated family spoke to The Daily Telegraph and pleaded for those involved to come forward.
‘Just tell us what happened,’ granddaughter Louise Hird told the publication.
‘If we knew what happened we could come to terms with it, but because we don’t know we can only guess.’
If you have any information call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
