A FRESH appeal from the family of a murdered man for information about the whereabouts of his body has the backing of police.
Over the past three years Tony Thompson, the father of St Albans man Murray Thompson (pictured right) whose body was never found after he disappeared in April 2010, has appealed to anyone who knows the location of his son’s remains to come forward.
Despite the absence of a body, cannabis grower James Evans from Watford was jailed for 21 years for Murray’s murder last October. He and others involved in the case have never revealed where the body is.
Det Insp Jerome Kent from the Beds, Cambs and Herts Joint Major Crime Unit said this week: “We support Tony’s appeal to find his son, Murray.
“Despite the fact we have secured a murder conviction and justice has been served, we will continue to pursue any lines of enquiry that may lead us to finding Murray.”

He added: “I am confident there are people connected to this investigation who may also have information about the whereabouts of Murray’s body and I would urge anyone with information to contact us.”
