Second property searched in Corby murder investigation

The focus of a fast moving murder investigation in Corby has moved to a second house on the Lincoln estate this morning (Friday).

A team of four specialist search officers from Northants Police’s tactical support team is searching for evidence at a small bungalow in Lincoln Way, about 100 metres from the scene of the murder in Butterwick Walk.

Floral tributes to victim Thomas Gravestock have been placed at both scenes overnight.

The 35-year-old was killed by an unknown attacker at the three-storey address earlier this week.

A police officer stood guard over the house this morning and scenes of crime officers were still searching the address today.

There remains a high level police presence on the estate.
