TWO men who were arrested in connection with the death of Colin Hall in Kirkby have been released without charge.

A murder inquiry was launched after Mr Hall (76) died following an attack at his home in Cornerpin Drive, on Sunday, 10th February.

DI Mat Healey said: “The person who did this is still out there and while the public response to our appeals has been fantastic we still want to talk to anyone who saw anything unusual in the area at around 9pm.”

Detectives believe the suspect is white, of medium to heavy build, and was wearing dark clothing with a black hat or hood and a sleeveless, yellow high-visibility jacket.

Officers are carrying out door-to-door enquiries and are distributing leaflets in the area, appealing for anyone with information to get in touch.

DI Healey added: “We would like to reassure you that we are working around the clock to ensure that this offender is caught.

“Detectives are looking at why Mr Hall was targeted and this remains a major inquiry. If you have information we need to speak to you urgently.”
