Avon and Somerset Police are appealing for help from the public to trace a number of items of clothing which could assist officers with an ongoing murder investigation.
The investigation is in connection with the death of Philip Jones, aged 50, who died at a property in Huish Court, Writhlington, near Radstock in the early hours of Saturday 16th June.
Detectives believe that some items of clothing may have been discarded or hidden in the hour after Philip’s death.
The items in question are similar to the ones pictured below, and include a green/khaki tracksuit, possibly North Face brand.
The map shows an area between Radstock and Frome. The tracksuit could have been discarded within this area, potentially in the near vicinity of the following roads:
- A362 Radstock to Frome
- B3139 Faulkland Rd
- A36 towards Warminster
James Riccio, Senior Investigating Officer, said: “We believe that these items, including a green/khaki hooded top and jogging bottoms which might be North Face brand, could help us with our investigation.
“If you believe you may have seen these items discarded by a road, in a garden, a bin or anywhere, we would like to hear from you.
“If you noticed anything suspicious or out of place in a street around Writhlington, Radstock and towards the Frome area, particularly in the hours and days after Saturday June 16 please get in contact with us.
“It may be something small and seem insignificant but it could be key evidence and help us to get justice for the family of Philip Jones.”
Anyone with information should call 101, quoting reference number 5218132140 and ask to speak to the major crime investigations team.
A 32-year-old man has been charged with murder in connection with Philip’s death.
