NORMA Dale was murdered in September 1946 and not the early 1950s, as stated in the letter of April 4.

This incident has always been known locally as the ‘Red Shoe Murder.’ Norma had been to her dancing class on the Saturday she disappeared, wearing a pair of red shoes. One of the shoes was missing when her body was discovered and like the culprit, was never found.
