Three questioned over man's murder
Detectives investigating the murder of a man whose body was found at a landfill site were today granted a further 24 hours to question three suspects.
West Mercia Police said officers were continuing to question two women and a man about the death of 43-year-old father-of-three Stephen Round.
All three suspects were detained on suspicion of murder on Saturday, a day after Mr Round's body was discovered at a recycling centre on Grange Lange, Redhill, Telford, Shropshire.
Officers now believe that Mr Round was killed at a flat in Church Street, St Georges, Telford, on Sunday June 27, the day of the England versus Germany World Cup match.
A post-mortem examination carried out by a Home Office pathologist revealed that Mr Round, who lived alone in St Georges, died of head and neck injuries.
Detective Inspector John Elcock, who is taking part in the murder inquiry, said: "A large team of officers continue to work on this case and we have been granted a further 24 hours to question the two women and the man we have in custody.
"This additional period of detention ends at around lunchtime tomorrow.
"I'd like to thank all those people that have come forward with information in relation to our investigation so far, but would once again like to appeal for any further witnesses to come forward as soon as is possible."
Anyone with information which could assist the inquiry is asked to contact West Mercia Police on 0300 333 3000 or the Crimestoppers hotline 0800 555 111.
