Chittering: Reward To Catch Killer

30 March 2012, 06:00

Up to £50,000 is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of Llywelyn Thomas' killer.

The 76 year old was found dead at his home in Ely Road on Sunday December 18th. 

It's thought he was killed during a botched burglary the previous night between 9.30pm and 10.30pm. 

£20,000 of the money is being put up by Mr Thomas' family, £10,000 by charity Crimestoppers and £20,000 by Cambridgeshire Police. 

Mr Thomas' son Richard said: 'I would urge anyone who has information about my father's death to come forward to assist the police investigation. 

'Someone out there knows what happened on the night he was killed, hopefully this reward will encourage them to help bring those responsible to justice.'

Three distinctive watches were found to be missing from his home along with a wallet. 

His silver Rover 75 estate, registration BJ51 CJV, was also stolen and found dumped in Church Lane, Milton. 

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. 

The reward will be divided between people who provide relevant information, which results in police officers arresting and convicting those responsible.
