Family of murdered Eye man appeal for information


The family of a man fatally attacked on the driveway of his Suffolk home have been handing out leaflets appealing for information.

Richard Clarke, 73, of Cranley Green Road in Eye, was discovered in the early hours of 22 August 2009.

He had suffered serious head injuries and later died.

Mr Clarke's children and grandchildren handed out leaflets in Eye with Crimestoppers officials appealing for fresh information.

The day before Mr Clarke was found he had gone to The Horseshoes Public House in Billingford and bought a Chinese takeaway on the way back at about 1900 BST.

Police believe he ate some of his meal on the driveway and that he could have been attacked then.

Plea for information

Crimestoppers and the family of Mr Clarke have each offered £5,000 reward for information passed to Crimestoppers which results in the arrest and conviction of the murderer.

The charity offers complete anonymity to those who contact it.

In a statement the family of Mr Clarke said: "Our dad is dead and our lives will never be the same.

"After bereavement, we must slowly start to put our new lives together and move forward with some hope in our heart.

"So we are asking you to come forward whether you know the whole story or any small part, even if it appears minor or irrelevant."
