Three men have been remanded in custody charged with the murder of a man in Ipswich while police search for a jacket as part of their investigation.

The body of 45-year-old Martin Edwards was found in his flat on Old Foundry Road on Christmas Day.

Patrick Heggarty, 51, of Limerick Close, Ipswich, Christopher Page, 37, and Timothy Bailey, 28, both of no fixed address, are charged with murder.

They are due to appear at Ipswich Crown Court on 11 March, 2011.

Multiple injuries

A 36-year-old woman is on police bail until 9 March, 2011 pending further inquiries by Suffolk police.

A post-mortem examination showed Mr Edwards died from multiple injuries.

Detectives are looking for a white and dark-coloured checked jacket with a lighter hood as part of their investigation.

Officers believe it was thrown away in a dustbin or has been left lying around.

A police spokesman said: "This appeal goes out to everyone in the town, but in particular to those who live on Limerick Close, Old Foundry Road and Norwich Road.

"We ask that anyone who does find it, does not touch it and instead contacts us immediately."
