Dog walker Peter Wrighton 'seen arguing before death'

CCTV shows final moments of elderly dog walker brutally stabbed to death

The South West Norfolk MP has expressed her shock at the violent death of a 83-year-old dog walker who was stabbed to death near East Harling.

Peter Wrighton, 83, who had been stabbed repeatedly in the neck and head, was "immensely kind and never had a bad word to say about anyone", his family said.

It is understood police are investigating whether Mr Wrighton may have had a row with another man moments before he was killed.

"Our main lines of inquiry include forensic investigations, extensive searches, witness interviews, house-to-house inquiries, CCTV capture and review and close liaison, as you'd understand, with Peter's family and our thoughts are with Peter's family at this hard time".

Norfolk Police has arrested a local man, in his 20s, on suspicion of murder and he remains in custody while inquiries continue. "We have somebody who is violent out there and it's somebody we need to find quick".

"This could include dog walkers, runners and ramblers". He was seen walking without a dog in the northern area of the heath.

On Thursday, police released footage of Mr Wrighton shopping in a post office on the day that he died along with maps of his final movements in the hope that it would "jog memories". Similarly, if you have a dash-cam or other recording devices and travelled in the area, save the footage and contact the police.

He said officers were appealing specifically to three men who police are yet to trace as potential witnesses.

Norfolk Police said it is not yet known whether the Banham man knew his killer, and said they have received more than 100 calls in the past three days in connection to the murder. It is believed he was wearing a grey or blue t-shirt and grey floppy gym style shorts above the knee and heavy duty flip flops. He is of an athletic build with short dark wavy hair and dark eyes.

He said officers were working with National Crime Agency experts on the investigation.

A man from the local area was arrested this morning. "This is a particularly brutal murder".
