The family of Northampton murder victim David Miller, have paid tribute to him today.
“David, a much loved brother; he was permanently a very kind and loving person, generous to a fault.
He will be sadly missed by his family.”
The 56 year-old was found dead at his home address in Patterdale Walk, Boothville in the early hours of Tuesday (14 June) morning.
Four people remain in custody having appeared last week at Northampton Crown Court, charged with murder. No bail applications were made.
Joseph Catlin, 30, Michael Hallett, 37, Ian Cuthbertson, 49 and Zena Kane, 35, all of no fixed address, are set to next appear in court on 5 September 2016.
A 39 year-old woman arrested on suspicion of the murder, and a 19 year-old man and a 27 year-old woman who were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, remain on police bail pending further enquiries.
"Detective Inspector Phil Mills is leading the investigation and says 'While there have been a number of developments in the case, including a series of arrests and charges, I still want to appeal to the public or anyone who knew David to come forward with any information they have.
We are still keen to speak to anyone who was in the area of Patterdale Walk or Oasis House in Campbell Street, Northampton town centre, between Friday (10 June) evening and Monday (13 June).'
A scene guard remains at Patterdale Walk where specialist forensic officers continue to investigate.
Anyone who may have any information about this incident is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
