Crimestoppers is offering up to £20,000 for vital information given to the charity anonymously about those responsible for the fatal shooting of Karen Reed on the doorstep of her Surrey home 30 years ago.

Karen, who was 33-years-old, was callously shot five times at close range in the hallway of her home along Willow Way on The Barnaby Estate in Woking. She answered her front door to a man appearing to be a delivery driver, who was holding a blue and white pizza box, at around 9.15pm on Saturday April 30, 1994.

Ms Reed told him that she hadn’t ordered anything. He then asked what address the house was. When she replied, he opened fire. An ambulance was called by a friend also at the property, but sadly Karen died at the scene.

Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £20,000 for information given anonymously to the charity that leads to the conviction of those linked to the murder of Karen Reed. The reward is available for three months and is due to expire on July 30, 2024.

It is believed that this murder was carried out by a professional contract killer and that Karen was the innocent victim of mistaken identity. The gunman was described as being tall with dark hair and wearing glasses.

Mick Duthie, director of operations at the charity Crimestoppers, said: “We are offering up to £20,000 as we know someone, somewhere knows who was behind Karen’s callous murder, and with the passage of time, we hope they will now come forward.

“Karen was an innocent victim of a calculated and cold murder which happened in a place that should have been safe, her home. We would like to see justice for Karen, her family and friends.

“If you prefer not to speak directly to the police or to give your personal details, remember our charity’s unique service, which guarantees your complete anonymity.

“Crimestoppers has been taking crime information since our charity began over 35 years ago. Every day over 2,000 people contact us online and over the phone. The information we receive makes a huge difference in keeping communities safe. Together, we can help bring justice after all these years for Karen.”
