Mrs Morgan’s body was found at Morgan’s Store in Finch Crescent, Linslade, on August 13, 1981.

The mum-of-two was 36 years old at the time and the case has never been solved.

On Wednesday, a 70-year-old man and a 72-year-old woman from Brighton were arrested on both suspicion of her murder and conspiracy to murder.

They have since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Detectives continue to appeal for any information about the death of Carol Morgan.
