Detectives granted additional 36 hours to interview murder suspects
Detectives investigating a fatal stabbing in Ipswich at the weekend have been granted more time to quiz three people arrested on suspicion of murder.
Officers were called to Turin Street in the town just after 1.50pm on Sunday to reports that a man had been stabbed.
The victim, a man aged in his 30s, died at the scene.
He has not yet been formally identified and a Home Office post-mortem examination is taking place today.
It is believed that the victim was attacked in an alleyway behind houses in Turin Street – which is also behind houses fronting on to Wherstead Road, according to police.
Three people – two men, aged 44 and 39, and a woman aged 31 – were arrested on suspicion of murder on Sunday and taken into police custody for questioning.
Police made applications for warrants of further detention at Ipswich Magistrates’ Court yesterday, and were granted an additional 36 hours to question all three suspects.
That will expire at 6.45am tomorrow morning.
