Christmas Day murder investigation

Police have revealed a man found dead at a block of flats early on Christmas Day had been stabbed in the neck.

Inderjit Singh's body was discovered at flats in Calshot Walk in Bedford at 2am on Saturday 25 December 2010.  The 39 year old, pictured right, lived in Bedford.

Detectives are trying to trace people who saw Inderjit in the hours leading up to his death.

Detective Chief Inspector Steve Collin from Bedfordshire Police said: "We are keen to hear from anybody in Calshott Walk or the nearby vicinity that may have seen this man in the area between 5 pm on 24 December and 2 am on 25 December 2010.

"We know Inderjit had knocked on several doors in the area and would urge anyone who may have seen or answered their door to Inderjit or an Asian man in this location, to please contact the police."

Officers have also appealed for help in tracing the knife used in stabbing. Now that the snow has melted they hope people in Bedford will check their gardens for the weapon.

Two men arrested in connection with Inderjit's death have been released on bail.
