Reward of £5,000 offered for information in murder investigation


A £5,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to any arrests and convictions being made for the murder of an Uppingham man which occurred 12 years ago.

Crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers is offering the reward, almost 12 years after the death of Clifford Clarke, 56, also known as ‘Shakey’, who was discovered in his kitchen on High Street East, Uppingham, on Sunday, September, 10 2000, with multiple stab injuries.

He had suffered repeated stab wounds to his back, neck and head at his home.

The investigation into this murder has been reopened by police, and Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person/s responsible for this crime.

East Midlands regional manager for Crimestoppers, Sue Langley, said: “This was a very high profile case at the time and shocked a lot of people in what is a very tight community.

“It is this tight community that I am appealing to, and anyone else that might have information on this crime, to contact Crimestoppers anonymously so that we can bring this case to a close over a decade after the crime occurred. We only want to know who you are, not what you know.”

Anyone with any information is advised to contact Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
