Essex Police have told Heart a man arrested by detectives investigating the murder of James Attfield, has been released without charge.

The 38 year-old man from Colchester was arrested on Wednesday, April 2.

Senior Investigating Officer, DCI Simon Werrett said: "This is very much an active investigation and we still need information to find the person or people responsible for James’ murder.

James was a vulnerable man who would actively avoid confrontation and risky situations. I cannot see any reason why someone would want to attack him. A mother has been robbed of her son, his siblings of their brother and his children of their father.

I am determined to ensure that James’ family are able to see justice done and whoever is responsible for James’ violent murder is taken off the streets."
