Main picture: Phil Blatch ~PP195328 FIONA BRADY Hunt for killer continues POLICE have stepped up the hunt for the killer of a local mother of two by carrying out a high-profile door-to-door operation in Croydon this week. As local residents made their way to work on Tuesday morning, they were approached by police trying to solve the murder of Joo Won Choi. Mrs Choi, 56, was found dead inside her Fitzroy St home shortly before 3pm on August 12. She had suffered multiple stab wounds and other injuries. On Tuesday morning officers set up a mobile police unit at the corner of Fitzroy and Brady streets, and visited nearby houses and shops in the hunt for clues. Burwood crime manager Det- Chief Insp Glen Fitzgerald said police were following a number of different lines of inquiry but needed the community's help -- especially anyone who was in the area on August 12. ''We want to hear from anyone who was in the area, even if they do not believe they witnessed anything out of the ordinary,'' he said. Det-Chief Insp Fitzgerald said police had received ''quite a bit of information'' from the operation. ''What might have seemed to be a regular going-on could actually be the bit of information police need to progress further with this case,'' he said. One of the ''lines of inquiry'' was that Mrs Choi might have known her killer because there was no sign of forced entry. Mrs Choi, who was Korean, was a regular church-goer and re- spected businesswoman. ''This is a very quiet area and this murder has shocked local residents,'' Det-Chief Insp Fitzgerald said. Witnesses should call Burwood police on 9745 8499 or Crime Stop- pers on 1800 333 000.
