Bradford man held over Clement Desmier murder released

Clement Desmier Clement "Butch" Desmier was well known in Bradford and Shipley

A man arrested in connection with the murder of a former musician in Bradford has been released without charge.

Clement Desmier, who was known as Butch, was found dead at his home on Rowlestone Rise on 23 August. He had been stabbed more than 40 times.

Police want to trace three men seen at his home around the time of his death.

A 19-year-old man who was arrested on Saturday has been released. Police urged anyone with information about Mr Desmier's death to come forward.

Last month an appeal and a reconstruction of Mr Desmier's last known movements was shown on the BBC's Crimewatch programme.

The Crimestoppers charity is offering a £5,000 reward for information which leads to a conviction in the case.
