A reward of up to £5,000 has been offered in connection with a murder in which a man was knifed 102 times.

James Attfield, 33, was found near Castle Park in Colchester on 29 March.

Mr Attfield, who had a brain injury after being hit by a car four years ago, had been at the River Lodge pub in the hours before his death.

Crimestoppers has offered the reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for his death.

Ann Scott, eastern regional manager for Crimestoppers, said: "I can simply not comprehend how someone can stab another person even once, let alone over 100 times.

"Thinking of what James must have gone through brings me to tears, which is why we have to find the person responsible for this horrific murder."

A 27-year-old woman from Colchester is due to return to police on Tuesday.

Detectives are yet to find a motive or a weapon.

The woman, who was arrested on Friday, was the second person to be held by police in the investigation.

A 38-year-old man arrested in Colchester on 2 April was released without charge three days later.
