Detectives investigating the James Attfield murder have identified another person from CCTV images released by police a few days after his body was discovered in a Colchester park.

The vulnerable father-of-five was found seriously injured with 102 stab wounds in Castle Park off Guildford Road shortly before 6am on March 29.

He died a short time later at the scene.

The 33-year-old, of East Bay in the town, was last seen in the River Lodge Public House in Middleborough on March 28. He left there shortly after 10pm, and was not seen until a passer-by discovered his body the following morning.

The woman in Image 20 on the Essex Police website (www.essex.police.uk) has now been identified, leaving officers still requiring help in identifying seven people – images four, six, nine, 11, 13, 21 and 22).

A man and a woman, both aged 27 and from Colchester, are currently on police bail until Wednesday after having been arrested in connection with the murder.

A Crimestoppers reward of up to £5,000 still remains on offer for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for the murder.

Anyone with information is asked to call Essex Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
