Police investigating the murder of a 90-year-old man in Pontefract are appealing for information to help trace his movements on the day he died.

Known locally as Terry, a post mortem revealed Nathaniel Suggitt died as a result of stab wounds in an attack on his flat at Love Lane Terrace.

Detectives have issued CCTV stills of him taken from the Asda supermarket in Pontefract on October 5. They are looking for information about his movements between 9.30am and 6.30pm to try and find out more about his route and who he spoke to.

A 49-year-old man remains in police custody after being arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the death.

Terry was a very active man in his local community and was well known and thought of. We know he went to his local Asda on that Saturday morning and it is likely he would have been spotted out and about in the area by persons who knew him.

I am particularly keen to speak with anyone who saw him between the hours of 9.30am and 6.30pm when he would have been out shopping and carrying out his usual business.

Anyone who can assist us is asked to contact the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team on 101 referencing Operation Pikeabbey.
