Man arrested on suspicion of murder after 83-year-old dog walker found dead in woods


A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering an 83-year-old grandfather who was stabbed to death while walking his two dogs. 

Peter Wrighton, 83, from Banham, was found dead in woodland near East Harling last Saturday.
A post mortem examination concluded the 83-year-old died as a result of multiple stab wounds to his neck and head.
A man, aged in his 20s, has since been arrested this morning on suspicion of murder and is currently being held in police custody.


Earlier this week, detectives released CCTV footage of the last known sighting of Mr Wrighton, a retired BT engineer, in Kenninghall Post Office between 10.08am and 10.12am on Saturday.
The 83-year-old was seen driving his red Skoda Fabia car to The Street, close to the woodland where he walked his dogs Dylan and Gemma.
His body was found by a member of the public at 10.46am.
