Man charged in St Albans man’s murder case
POLICE have charged a man in connection with the disappearance of St Albans man Murray Thompson.
James Evans, 22, of Bushey Mill Lane in Watford was charged yesterday (Tuesday) with perverting the course of justice, preventing a lawful burial and three counts of producing cannabis.
Murray, 34, who lived in St Peters Street, has been missing since April 20 last year and detectives believe that he has been murdered. The investigation has been centred on the Watford area where his white Gil-Lec work van was last seen.
Despite numerous appeals and a substantial reward put up by his heartbroken parents, police have not been able to locate his body.
A 46-year-old man from Watford and a 31-year-old man from Rickmansworth who were both arrested on suspicion of murder also answered bail yesterday and have been rebailed.
