A WEBSITE has been launched today (Wednesday) to help find the killers of Alan Wood, who was murdered in his home near Bourne in 2009.

The 50-year-old’s body was discovered bound and tortured at his home in Lound two years ago and the search for those responsible is still ongoing.

Police have set up a dedicated website, available at www.alanwoodmurder.com, to help them bring Mr Wood’s killers to justice.

Det Supt Stuart Morrison, who is leading the investigation, said: “The aim of this website is to keep the appeal for information on Alan’s killers in the public domain and to provide people with an easy and accessible way of reporting things to us.

“It is designed to give visitors an overview of the whole case and a chance to review the main evidence and appeal points.

“We want people in this country and people living abroad to study the investigation details, particularly the CCTV images of the suspect and call us if they think the can help us.”

The website is the first of its kind to be set up by police in the UK. It features a detailed roundup on the circumstances surrounding Mr Wood’s death and a breakdown of the investigation including key evidence to date, biographical detail and comments from his family.

It gives details and CCTV footage of the prime suspect, a man who was seen using cash machines in Bourne and Stamford in the days following the murder. Mr Wood’s bank cards were used in the two towns after his death.

The two BBC Crimewatch programmes that featured the case are also available on the site, including subtitled versions in Polish, Lithuanian and Russian.

There is a dedicated section about the £60,000 reward from Sainsbury’s and Crimestoppers for information leading to a conviction and an easy to use reporting form for the public to give information direct to the investigation team.
