TWO years on from the brutal murder of Alan Wood police are still hunting for his killers.
Alan, who was last seen alive at The Willoughby Arms, in Little Bytham, was subjected to a horrific and sustained attack in his home in Lound, near Bourne. His body was found on October 24, 2009.
The 50-year-old was bound with tape and stabbed in the eye. He suffered repeated knife wounds to the head and had his throat cut a number of times. After he had been killed, his attacker(s) attempted to decapitate him.
Det Supt Stuart Morrison is asking people to take another look at the CCTV and to come forward if they think they can help catch Alan’s killers - the reward for information leading to a conviction is £60,000, which is the largest ever offered in the East Midlands.
Det Supt Morrison said: “It is now two years since the murder of Alan Wood and an enormous amount of work has been done to identify and arrest his killers.
“The anniversary of Alan’s death is undoubtedly a difficult time for his family. We are still in regular contact with them and they are aware that we are still working hard to bring his killers to justice. We want to reassure the wider public of this too and it is important to us that they continue to think about the case, view the wealth of material we have made public and contact us if they have any information.”
After his murder his credit cards were used in Stamford and Bourne – only a few hundred pounds were withdrawn.
