Police seek clues to James Allen’s movements
10:04am Tuesday 1st May 2012 in News
POLICE questioning a man in connection with the murders of two people are continuing to appeal for information as they urge members of the public to check their properties for signs of anyone living rough.
In particular, farmers around North Yorkshire and the Selby district have been urged to look out for any evidence that murder suspect James Allen has slept rough in one of their outbuildings.
Allen was arrested in Leeds on Sunday, in connection with the deaths of two people – 50-year-old Whitby woman Julie Davison, and Middlesbrough man Colin Dunford, 81.
Police said they are still trying to piece together Allen’s movements over the last week.
Detective Chief Inspector Steve Smith, who is leading the North Yorkshire Police investigation, said: “If anyone who does find any items or believes someone has been living rough on or near their property, the advice is not to touch or disturb them. Just leave them in place and call Cleveland Police immediately on 101.”
