Main article content
A year on from his death, detectives investigating the murder of Martin Truett are re-appealing for information.
Martin, aged 63, was attacked in his home in Highfield Road, Wellingborough, on Friday, November 25, 2022, between 8.45pm and 10pm, when he answered the door to three males, claiming to be from the Border Agency.
He was taken to hospital where he sadly died 17 days later on the morning of Monday, December 12.
A murder investigation was launched and a 50-year-old man from Northampton was arrested in April and released on police bail pending further enquiries.
However, no one has yet been charged in connection with Martin’s death.
Senior Investigating Officer - Detective Chief Inspector Adam Pendlebury, said: “It’s been one year since Martin was attacked and I know that there is someone out there with the information that can help us bring the people responsible for his death to justice.
“That’s why I want to once again appeal to the public for help and ask that anyone with any information comes forward and speaks to us.
“Perhaps you saw something suspicious that night or in the nights leading up to the attack? Perhaps you had similar knocks on your door? Whatever your information is, and no matter how small, please give us a call.
“Whilst many of us are looking forward to the holiday period and Christmas time, Martin’s family are still trying to come to terms with their loss. If you can, please help us to provide them with some closure.”
Anyone with information should call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. Any CCTV, doorbell or dashcam footage can be submitted via our public portal Public Portal (mipp.police.uk).
