Hollesley/Ipswich: Second suspect in Luke Durbin murder case re-bailed

DETECTIVES have re-bailed a 26-year-old man from the Woodbridge area arrested in connection with the suspected murder teenager Luke Durbin.

The 19-year-old from Hollesley vanished after a night out in Ipswich in 2006.

The 26-year-old suspect was the second person to be arrested by officers from Suffolk Constabulary’s major investigation team.

He was detained in late June on suspicion of being concerned in the murder of Mr Durbin, but bailed pending further enquiries.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said the suspect has now been re-bailed until January 23.
