Police are appealing for help to identify a man found murdered at house in East Yorkshire. The man's body was found yesterday at Whisker Cottage in Full Sutton near Stamford Bridge. He's believed to have been in his fifties.
We are under taking enquiries to establish events which led to this man losing his life. We are seeking to confirm his identity and locate any next of kin. Although very much in the early stages of the investigation, we have not managed to trace any family or friends who are able to identify the man, nor is there an apparent motive for his murder. We are keen to hear from anyone who might have information about the victim, who is believed to be the occupier of Whisker Cottage. If you have information which can help us to trace his next of kin we appeal to you to speak to us. "
The cause of the man's death currently remains unconfirmed until a post mortem can take place.
Whisker Cottage and some surrounding area is presently cordoned off to enable investigations to take place.
