Tributes paid to victims in triple murder investigation

A picture has begun to emerge of the victims and the thread of connections that lie at the heart of a triple murder investigation.

Police have named the two men whose bodies were found in a drainage dyke near Peterborough on Wednesday - and one of them turns out to have been a tenant of the first man to be found murdered.

He was Kevin Lee, a builder, landlord and former gangmaster who was stabbed to death. His body was found last Saturday. Police have been searching some of his properties and have spoken to a number of his tenants.
