Police investigating the murder of a pensioner want to trace a black car seen parked outside his house on December 17.
Chittering: Murder Poster Appeal
Police investigating the murder of a pensioner in Chittering are putting up posters appealing for information.
The body of Llwelyn George Thomas, 76, was discovered by officers called to the home in Ely Road shortly after 12.30pm on Sunday December 18.
A post mortem examination carried out at Peterborough City Hospital on Tuesday revealed he died as a result of injuries to his face and head.
His car, which police believe was stolen on Saturday evening, was discovered around five miles away in Church Lane in Milton on Monday morning.
Forensic officers are examining the car, and also scouring the house where Mr Thomas, a retired farmer, was found and the surrounding grounds.
Detectives are also trying to trace the movements of what is described as a 'small, black car' which a passing motorist spotted on Mr Thomas's driveway on Saturday evening.
Officers are also putting up posters in shops, pubs and on village noticeboards appealing for more information about the murder.
The posters [being put up by a police officer - pictured above right] appeal for information from the public about the movements of Mr Thomas's silver Rover, which Police believe was driven along the A10 to Milton between 6pm and 11:30pm on Saturday.
Detective Superintendent Jeff Hill said: "We are very keen to trace the exact movements of this vehicle on Saturday night.
The car would have been very distinctive due to mechanical problems meaning it would have been noisy when it was being driven.
It is also likely to have been travelling quite slowly, which would have been quite noticeable especially on the A10.
If you saw this car being driven, or know where the occupants went after leaving it in Church Lane, Milton, please call police."
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Major Investigations Team on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
