The family of a Norfolk man found dead in his flat have made a fresh plea for information - eight years on from his death.

Jan Hogan's body was discovered on May 23 in 2010 in Basil Drive, Downham Market. A coroner recorded his death as an open verdict in 2011.

Last month, two men were arrested in connection with what happened and released under investigation.

Now, Jan's family say they now have 'renewed hope' that they'll get justice for their dad.

"Today we mark another year of dad’s death, a day which despite the passing of time never gets any easier.

"Dad was a loving, funny and intelligent man who never failed to provide for his family and we miss him every day.

"Recent developments in the investigation have given us renewed hope in finding answers and we would urge anyone who knows anything about his death to come forward and speak to police. Help us get justice for our dad.”

Detective Inspector Stuart Chapman, from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, said they are continuing to follow "a number of lines of enquiry concerning Mr Hogan’s death”.

Anyone with information concerning the case should contact the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team on 101.
