SOMERSET NEWS: Police ask for public’s help in murder appeal

POLICE are appealing for the public’s help in our investigation into the murder of Heather Jordan in Taunton at the weekend. 

She was found in Lyngford Park in Taunton on Sunday (February 18, 2018) morning.

The police investigation is now focusing on the area between Priorswood Primary School and Taunton Railway Station, where it is believed, items officers need to trace may have been discarded by the suspect.

Specialist teams are searching the area but police would also appeal to members of the public to search sheds, garages, outbuildings, and bins outside their homes. 

A police spokesman said: “We are keen to trace a ZTE mobile phone; a brown and yellow coloured purse and clothing which may have been discarded. The clothing could be concealed in a bag.

“If you have seen or spot the items, do not touch them but call 101 immediately and ask to speak to the Major Crime Investigation Team.”

The spokesman added: “We have extra neighbourhood officers patrolling in the area to provide reassurance and receive information. You can raise any concerns you may have with the officers.

“You can also provide information directly to the investigative team on-line at where you need to select the tab relating to the murder of Heather Jordan.”
