Narberth murder hunt for Angelika Dries-Jenkins' killer

Police in Pembrokeshire are continuing to hunt the killer of a woman whose body was found in her home in Narberth.

Dyfed-Powys Police have appealed for information following the murder of Angelika Dries-Jenkins, 66, a mother and grandmother.

Officers said they are relying strongly on information from the community after the discovery of the body on Friday.

They particularly want to hear from anyone who saw her champagne-coloured Skoda Fabia last week.

The car, registration GP05 LNY, was taken from her home in the Providence Hill area of Narberth around last Tuesday.

It was found in St Thomas Green, Haverfordwest, at about 1300 BST on Saturday. Police are not sure how long it had been there.

Detectives said at the weekend that Ms Dries-Jenkins could have been murdered at any time last week.

Det Supt Pam Kelly, the senior investigating officer, said the victim's family were devastated.

It would have been Ms Dries-Jenkins's 67th birthday on Sunday, two days after her body was found.

Residents in Narberth reacted with shock that a murder had been committed in what is normally a quiet area.

Local councillor Elwyn Morse said the community was in shock at the murder of a "very kind hearted, kindly natured person."

"She lived alone, led a quiet life and did a lot of gardening," he said.

"I just couldn't imagine her having any enemies, anyone with a grudge to bear against her.

"We're hoping the police will have some answers or something to go on in the coming days."

Det Supt Kelly said the colour of the car was very important to the investigation and appealed for help from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
