Police investigating the murder of a pensioner in Chittering, near Cambridge, plan to stop and question drivers passing the crime scene.

The body of 76 year old Llewelyn Thomas was found in his home [pictured - right] just off the A10 in Chittering on Sunday 18th December - almost four weeks ago.

Tests found he died from injuries to his face and head sustained during an assault. 

Tomorrow (Saturday) officers investigating his death will be carrying out stop checks between Chittering and Milton.

Detectives are keen to find out more about the movements of Mr Thomas's silver Rover 75 estate car.

The car was stolen on Saturday 17th December before being found two days later six miles away in the village of Milton.

A 22 year old man and a 21 year old woman remain on bail after being arrested in connection with the investigation.

Detective Superintendent Jeff Hill said: "Officers will be stopping drivers heading along the A10 between Chittering and Milton today to ask if they remember seeing the Rover on that Saturday evening, four weeks ago.

We know the car had mechanical problems so would have been noisy and travelling very slowly.

We will be asking motorists to think back to that day, they may remember having been stuck behind a slow moving vehicle.

We need to know what time that car was on the road and where the occupants went to after leaving the vehicle in Milton."

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Major Investigations Team on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
