Tattingstone suitcase murder: Police appeal over Bernard Oliver death

The murder of a 17-year-old boy whose dismembered body parts were found in suitcases in 1967 continues to be reviewed by cold case detectives, police said.

The body of Bernard Oliver, from Muswell Hill, north London, was found dumped on farmland in Tattingstone, near Ipswich.

He went missing on 6 January 1967 and was found 10 days later. No one has ever been charged over the murder.

Det Ch Insp Caroline Millar, of Suffolk Police, said: ""Using advances in forensic science such as DNA familial profiling and the experience of current and retired senior detectives, the team are looking for any development that could help with the investigation into the murder of Bernard Oliver, including new information from the public.

"Even with the passage of 50 years, it is never too late for people to come forward with any information they think may help this inquiry."
