Daughter of Murdered Muriel McKay Comes Face-to-Face with Killer 50 Years Later

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago – After more than 50 years, Dianne McKay, the daughter of murdered Muriel McKay, met her mother’s killer in his native Trinidad. Nizamodeen Hosein, who had been deported after serving 20 years in jail, showed Dianne the location where he buried her mother’s body in a heartfelt meeting that took place over the weekend.

The tragic tale dates back to 1969, when Brothers Nizamodeen and Arthur Hosein abducted Muriel McKay, mistakenly thinking she was media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s first wife, Anna. They proceeded to inflict torturous cruelty on their helpless victim before murdering her at a farm in Hertfordshire, where Nizamodeen is believed to have buried her.

In a heartbreaking encounter, Hosein pointed to a spot on a photograph of the farm and disclosed to Dianne, “This is where I buried her.” According to The Times, Hosein expressed remorse, admitting that he was young and scared of his brother when the crime was committed.

Despite the passage of time, the family of the murder victim has been relentlessly pushing for information about where her body might have been left. The Metropolitan Police conducted an extensive search for Muriel’s remains in March 2022 at a site in Hertfordshire, but it concluded unsuccessfully. They continue to review any opportunities to recover her body and return her to her family.

Speaking about the emotional meeting, Dianne expressed her determination to give her mother the burial she deserves. She also acknowledged that she will never be able to forgive Hosein, but she just wants closure. Hosein, on the other hand, claimed that he is now trying his best to help as he hasn’t got much time left.

The tragic case continues to haunt the family, but their pursuit of closure and justice serves as a reminder of the enduring impact of such horrific crimes.
