Shock­ing murder – some­one must know the killer

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

AS po­lice re­veal more de­tails of the death of Alan Wood, the true ex­tent of the man’s hor­rific or­deal makes shock­ing read­ing.

Tied up, tor­tured, mur­dered and pos­si­bly mu­ti­lated as he lay dead, it was a crime that shocked the tiny vil­lage of Lound near Bourne in Oc­to­ber last year.

The level of vi­o­lence used, pos­si­bly over a three-day pe­riod, has even stunned ex­pe­ri­enced de­tec­tives han­dling the case.

So while some peo­ple might find the de­tails dis­turb­ing – which they are – po­lice are right to go pub­lic in the hope of track­ing his killer or killers.

There may be peo­ple read­ing this who know who is re­spon­si­ble or at least have a sus­pi­cion. And this might just be the trig­ger to bring them out of the wood­work.

A re­ward now stand­ing at £60,000 is an­other in­cen­tive, of course.

Any­one ca­pa­ble of such a fe­ro­cious and de­praved murder should not be walk­ing the streets.

The sooner the po­lice get them be­hind bars, the bet­ter.
