Nigel Acres, the partner of Valerie Graves' sister, said: "We would ask anyone who is eligible to attend one of the screening sessions and give their DNA. "This is a difficult case and we know the police are doing all they can to solve it. "The DNA screening is an important part of the investigation. Please help."
The police are doing all they can to solve this. I would encourage all men in the area to come forward to give their DNA. I have given mine and it is so easy. You just open your mouth for a few seconds for the swab and roll your thumb across a pad for your thumbprint to be taken.
The DNA screening sessions are taking place at the Millstream Hotel today and tomorrow, and from Monday 2nd February to Saturday 7th February and from Tuesday 10th February to Sunday 15th February. All sessions are from 10am to 8pm.
Artist Valerie Graves, 55, was found dead in a ground floor bedroom of a house she was looking after for friends on 30th December 201
