Police investigating the murder of Corby night club boss David Ross have arrested and bailed a 39-year-old man in the town.

The man was arrested after officers from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit carried out a number of search warrants at addresses in Corby and Market Harborough, yesterday (Tuesday 19 March).

He was arrested in Corby on suspicion of murder and interviewed at Corby Police Station. The 39 year old has been released on bail to return in three months’ time.

Mr Ross, who was 39 and called Les,  died as a result of a blow to the head and was found on Monday 17 December 2012.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin Kinchin, who is leading the investigation, said: "The searches and the arrest are amongst a number of active lines of enquiry. We are still particularly interested to speak to anybody who was in contact with Les during 2012.

"We know he confided in different people in his life. He will have told them about aspects of his life, his hopes or concerns. We need those people to come forward and contact us so that we can build a true picture of the life of David Ross."

His body was discovered in the Village Express Hotel in The Jamb, Corby, on Monday, December 17.

Three days earlier his home in Chelveston Drive, Corby, was broken into and a number of items, including a laptop computer, were stolen.

The murder was featured on TV's Crimewatch and a £10,000 reward has been offered for information.
