Chittering: Murder Scene
Police continue to investigate the murder of a man in the Cambridgeshire village of Chittering.
Forensic examinations are continuing in Chittering following the discovery of the body of a 76 year old man.
Police launched a murder investigation after the man's body was found on Sunday afternoon.
A post mortem revealed the man, who has not yet been formally identified, died as a result of injuries to his head and face.
Neighbours called police after becoming concerned that lights in the house in Ely Road [pictured - above right] were on and the front door was open.
The victim's car, which police believe was stolen on Saturday, was discovered approximately five miles away in Church Lane in the village of Milton on Monday morning.
One line of inquiry that police are investigating is that the man was the victim of a burglary that went wrong.
Forensic officers are continuing to scour the house and grounds for evidence.
On Monday, the search was expected to last for 'several days'.
Police are also going from door to door in the small village to try and get more information from people living nearby.
Detective Chief Inspector Ian Tandy said: "We are very keen to hear from anyone who saw the victim's car between his home in Chittering, by the Travellers Rest public house, and Milton on Saturday evening.
The car had mechanical issues and would have made a lot of noise when it was being driven, it is also likely to have been travelling slowly."
Anyone with any information is asked to call DCI Tandy on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
