Three arrested over Boston waterway murder

Jan Pawel Stochnialek Police have asked for help in tracing Mr Stochnialek's movements

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a Polish man whose body was found in a waterway.

Jan Pawel Stochnialek, 28, who lived in Boston, was found dead in the South Forty-Foot Drain in the town.

Detectives arrested men aged 25 and 34 in King's Lynn earlier and a 23-year-old man in Manchester on Thursday.

Police are still appealing for information about Mr Stochnialek's movements between Christmas Eve and 25 January, when his body was found.

Although his body was found in the waterway close to the town centre, police believe it could have entered the water some distance away.

Det Ch Insp Matt Hewson, from Lincolnshire Police, said: "I am appealing to anyone, such as fishermen and dog walkers, to think back over recent weeks and contact us if they recall seeing any suspicious activity along the waterway."

All three suspects will be interviewed at Boston Police Station.
