Detective Chief Inspector Tracey Little, from the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, appealed again to for witnesses, saying: “I would still be keen to hear from anyone who may have any information about the events leading up to Andrew’s death, or anyone who may have seen any activity in the Dickens Court area at around 10pm on Saturday evening.

“It’s important to both the investigation and to Andrew’s family that we find out exactly what happened to him. Even if you believe your information may be insignificant, anything could help us to piece together Andrew’s final movements.”

Anyone with information should contact Norfolk Constabulary’s Major Investigation Team on 101, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their Anonymous Online Form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
