Police search continues at Durham 'murder' site
POLICE are today continuing to search for clues to explain the death of a North-East solicitor found stabbed near a sports centre.
Peter Maine, 56, was found with three stab wounds to the chest near Maiden Castle, Durham City, on Sunday morning, prompting Durham Police to launch a murder-style inquiry.
Today, officers have been distributing posters bearing a photo of the father-of-two in the hope of prompting more potential witnesses to come forward.
Detectives are also studying witness statements and gathering CCTV footage to piece together Mr Maine’s last moments.
Detective Chief Inspector Steve Chapman said: “Mr Maine’s death remains suspicious but we have to keep an open mind as to how he came by his injuries.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Durham Police on 101.
