Police investigating the murder of a man in Colchester have appealed for anyone who was in the area around the time of his death to get in touch with them.

The body of the 52-year-old was found in a flat in Forest Road on Wednesday, August 22.

Detectives are continuing to question a 32-year-old man in connection with his murder.

Police particularly want to hear from anyone who was in the Forest Road area between 2am and 6am on Wednesday morning, or any members of the public who may have dash cam footage.

"I’m specifically interesting in hearing from people who were in the Forest Road, Hawthorne Avenue and Avon Way areas of Greenstead, between 2am and 6am on Wednesday morning," DI Alan Pitcher said.

"I want to know if anyone saw anything suspicious and I’m especially keen to hear from someone who may have been driving in their area and has dash cam footage of their journey to get in touch with the team.”
