Police hunt for man over guest house murder
John Heald wanted in connection with the death of a woman in East Yorkshire
Police are hunting for a man in connection with the murder of a woman at a guest house in Bridlington, East Yorkshire.
Humberside police want to talk to John Heald, 53, from South Yorkshire, as a matter of urgency and warned he should not be approached by the public.
Heald is wanted in connection with the murder of woman at the premises in Marshall Avenue, Bridlington, whose body was found just before midnight on Friday.
The victim has not been formally identified but is believed to be a 49-year-old local woman.
Police said Mr Heald has been identified as having been a resident at the premises and may be connected with the death.
He is described as white, with a slim build, and has short, grey hair. When last seen he was wearing smart jeans and had a distinctive diamond stud earring in his right ear.
Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Matt Baldwin said: “It is imperative that we locate John Heald as soon as possible and I would appeal to him to make contact with us iurgently.
“If anyone has been contacted by Mr Heald or knows anything about his whereabouts, I would ask them to do the right thing, do not be swayed by a misguided sense of loyalty, ring the police now.”
Police are appealing particularly to people such as taxi drivers, hitchhikers and those using buses or trains and who may have seen Mr Heald to come forward, as he may have attempted to flee East Yorkshire.
