Police are trying to piece together Mr Attfield’s last movements.

His body was found with 102 stab wounds close to Colchester’s Lower Castle Park at 5.45am on Saturday, March 29.

Efforts by paramedics to revive him failed and a murder investigation was launched.

Mr Attfield, 33, was last seen at 10.09pm the previous evening in the River Lodge pub in Middleborough.

Det Chief Insp Simon Werrett, senior investigating officer, said: “I am hoping these photographs of James will help people to remember whether they saw him on Friday night or Saturday morning.

“While we are examining many hours of CCTV in the area we still need to piece together James’ last movements before he was killed.

“I am sure there is still someone out there who has information they are not sharing with police. I would urge them to contact my team or call Crimestoppers anonymously.”

A special hotline number is open between 6.30am and 8pm on 01245 282103. Outside these times the team can be called on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
