Inquest adjourned into death of Eye pensioner

An inquest into the death of a 73-year-old man in Eye has been delayed.

Today's hearing looking into the death of Richard Clarke two years ago was reopened and adjourned before any evidence was heard.

The session, at Norwich Coroner's Court, will resume at a later date.

Mr Clarke was found in the driveway to his home on Cranley Green Road on the morning of Saturday August 22 2009. He had suffered serious head injuries and had collapsed. A murder investigation was opened but nobody has yet been charged.

Police, Crimestoppers officials, and relatives handed out 1,000 flyers and posters in Eye in November after putting up a �10,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of his killer.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or Suffolk Police on 01473 613500.
