Murder investigation begins after body discovered in ditch by A16 at Newborough.
Peterborough: Arrest Over Body In Ditch
A man has been arrested after the body of a man was found in a ditch north of Peterborough.
Cambridgeshire Police say a 23 year old man was questioned at Peterborough's Thorpe Wood Station on suspicion of murder.
The man, from Peterborough, was arrested on Sunday evening, and today (Monday) released on bail until a date next month.
Police were called to the A16 at Newborough, on Saturday morning after a member of the public discovered the body in a ditch.
A post-mortem examination found the man, subsequently named by Cambridgeshire Police as 48 year old Kevin Lee from Fletton in Peterborough, was stabbed to death.
The victim was last seen at 2pm on Good Friday and reported missing at 10.40pm that day, just after his metallic, light blue Mondeo was discovered burned out near a farm in Yaxley at about 9pm.
Detective Chief Inspector Martin Brunning said officers were treating the man's death as an 'isolated incident'.
He added yesterday: "I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Newborough yesterday morning, or who may have seen the Mondeo estate being driven in the Yaxley area on Good Friday, to call police.
We are in contact with the man's family and will be keeping them up to date on our investigation."
