Police given more time to question Whitby murder suspects

Detectives investigating the murder of a 32-year-old man in Whitby have been granted more time to question two people in connection with the incident.

Officers arrested a 22-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man on Friday 22 February 2012 after the victim was found dead at a property in Spring Hill Court. They have been in police custody since then.

I would like to reassure the people of Whitby that this incident is being thoroughly investigated.

We have two people in custody and we are not looking for anyone else as part of our enquiries.

– Detective Chief Inspector Keith Ruff, North Yorkshire Police
