APPEAL FOR INFORMATION ON COLD CASE MURDER AT EYE
A new appeal for information has been made by police looking to solve a murder case at Eye 10 years ago.
Police say that it is ‘very possible’ that someone living in the Eye area has information that could provide the key to unlocking the mystery of the case. Detectives are running a cold-case inquiry into the death of 73-year-old retired thatcher, Richard Clarke in August 2009.
The father of two was found with a fatal head injury in the driveway of his home in Cranley Green Road, on the outskirts of the town. Post-mortems suggested that he had been attacked, but despite a major investigation, no killer was found. A man, arrested soon after the death, was released without charge.
