The detective leading the investigation into the murder of a man in his own home almost 30 years ago has made a renewed appeal for information.

Last month the EDP, together with its sister papers across the county, unveiled a ground-breaking new bid to catch major criminals walking free on Norfolk streets.

As part of Norfolk Unsolved the EDP, in partnership with Norfolk police, will take a renewed look at some of the county's most serious unsolved cases in a bid to try to bring justice, and ultimately closure, to those families who have lost loved ones – murdered, attacked or taken from them in the most horrific of circumstances.

The campaign launched with the case of Peter Miller, a 24-year-old man whose body was discovered by his brother, Tony, in the kitchen of his home in Camden Place, Yarmouth, on December 9, 1984.

As part of the launch we revealed crucial new details in the case, including the discovery of a weapon in the town almost 30 years after the crime.

The campaign, which has also been featured on our websites and our Mustard TV operation, has generated significant interest with detectives in the case delighted with the response so far.

Det Insp Gary Bloomfield, senior investigating officer with the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team (MIT), said: 'Officers continue to follow new lines of inquiry regarding a person of interest which was highlighted following the initial media appeal. It is hoped that information established through these investigations will help to take the case forward.
