A reward of up to £10,000 is being offered as part of the hunt for the killers of a 74-year-old Northampton man.

David Brickwood was attacked in his own home in Lindsay Avenue in the early hours of Saturday September 26.

Two months on, independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information passed through its 0800 555 111 number or online form, that leads to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for his death.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: “The major investigation team that was set up following the murder is now following a number of leads in the hunt for the 74-year-old’s killer.”

Later today, DCI Mick Graham, who is leading the case, will give further updates on the case.

Sue Witts, East Midlands regional manager for Crimestoppers, said: “Mr Brickwood was well-known and well-liked within his community which is what makes this violent crime all the more shocking.

“We all deserve to feel safe in our own homes and it is extremely important that the people responsible are brought to justice to ensure they cannot strike again.

“There are people out there who know who did this and I would urge them to contact Crimestoppers anonymously.

“We don’t take personal details and we can’t trace information given online or on the phone. We don’t want to know who you are, just what you know.”
