A memorial to the murdered private detective Daniel Morgan has been placed in a Powys church yard to mark the 25th anniversary of his death.
Mr Morgan, 37, originally from Llanfrechfa, near Cwmbran, was found with an axe in his head in a south London pub car park in 1987. His grave is in London, but his elderly mother wanted a memorial closer to her home in Hay-on-Wye.
The murder has been investigated five times, but no-one has been convicted.
Mr Morgan’s mother Isobel Hulsmann, 84, and her daughter Jane Royds, who lives in Glasbury, near Hay-on-Wye, have placed the memorial stone in Glasbury church yard.
“They will put a few flowers on the memorial on Saturday,” said Mr Morgan’s brother Alastair, who lives in London.
“They wanted somewhere close to hand in memory of Daniel, and put up the memorial a few days ago to mark the 25th anniversary of his death.
“My mother’s 84 now and travelling to and from London takes its toll.”
A judicial inquiry has not been ruled out into Mr Morgan’s murder.
