Police investigating the murder of Corby businessman David 'Les' Ross (right) have been speaking to members of the public in The Jamb and High Street areas of Corby.

Northamptonshire Police spoke to local people on Monday 7 January 2013, three weeks to the day since the body of Mr Ross was discovered in the Village Inn Express hotel in The Jamb in Corby.

Three men have been arrested and bailed in connection with a burglary at the home of Mr Ross in Chelveston Drive, Corby, a couple of days before his death.

On Friday 4 January, a 22 year old Corby man was arrested and bailed.  The following day, two more men - aged 21 and 18, both from Corby - were also arrested and released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin Kinchin, who is leading the murder inquiry, said: "It now seems likely that the burglary at Mr Ross's home address occurred late on Friday 14 December, while he was at work.

"In that burglary, his Blackberry and I-phone were stolen, along with a Playbook tablet and a laptop computer.

"It is very likely that this property has now been sold on but we are actively looking to recover these items and I anticipate further arrests will be made."
