Detectives return after manhunt

THREE detectives who travelled to China in the hunt for a murder suspect have returned to England.

The officers were looking for Anxiang Du, the main suspect in the investigation into the murder of the Ding family, who were killed almost a year ago in Wootton, Northampton.

Officers have been in contact with the Chinese authorities but it was anticipated a personal visit would allow them to speak to the suspect’s associates.

DCI Tom Davies, who is leading the investigation, said: “We strongly believe that there are people out there with information on the whereabouts of Mr Du and we need those people to come forward.”
