Family appeals for help to find Sonny Grey's killers

The family of a 70-year-old man who was murdered at his home in Lincoln have appealed for help to find his killers.

Sonny Grey, of Westwick Gardens, died on 29 October after an attack in which he was scalded with boiling water from a kettle.

His family said they were finding it hard to sleep knowing that his killers have not been caught.

Granddaughter, Peige Nelson, said "he was always there for us and we are lost without him".

"How they can hurt a man of that age and take him away," she said.

"He was always there for us and if we fell he would pick us back up with his big strong arms."

The family have urged people to get in touch with police if they have any information about Mr Grey's murder.

Detectives said a number of items of distinctive jewellery and cash may have been stolen during the attack at Mr Grey's home, including a ring with a horse's head.

They are looking for three men in connection with his death and want to speak to anyone who has seen the jewellery.
