Colchester: Images Released In Murder Investigation

Police investigating the murder of James Attfield in Colchester have released images of 23 people they want to speak to.

They were seen walking in to Castle Park just hours before the 33-year-old was found dying.

The images, taken from a CCTV camera which overlooks the area of Middle Mill on the outskirts of the park, show people walking in the area between 11.45pm on Friday, March 28, and 4.23am on Saturday, March 29.

The 21 images being released show 23 different people who detectives want to trace and speak to.

Senior Investigating Officer, DCI Simon Werrett, said: "The images from this camera at the entrance of the park at Middle Mill capture a number of people possibly walking in to the park. I would ask anyone who may have walked in this area on Friday night or Saturday morning to take a look at the pictures and see if they recognise themselves.

"Even if they are not pictured I would ask that they still contact my team to see if they might have any information which will help our enquiry.

"These CCTV images clearly demonstrate that the pathways through Castle Park are used regularly at night and as such there must be someone out there who holds vital information which could help us find the person or people who attacked James so brutally and left him alone to die."

Anyone wanting to contact the Major Investigation team can do so on the hotline number 01245 282103 between 6.30am and 8pm, 101 outside these times, or Crimestoppers anonymously and in the strictest confidence on 0800 555 111.
