A SECOND appeal for information about the torture and murder of Alan Wood is to be broadcast on Crimewatch.

Film crews from the BBC programme were in Lound, Bourne and Stamford on Monday and Tuesday to record new material into the ongoing police investigation.

Mr Wood (50) was found dead at his home in Lound on October 24, 2009.

Det Supt Stuart Morrison, of Lincolnshire Police, said: “We will be working closely with the programme makers at the BBC over the next couple of weeks to ensure that we present the public with a comprehensive investigation update and show new evidence that we hope will move our enquiries forward.

“We would urge as many people as possible to watch the programme. It will contain new material that could be relevant to anyone living in Lincolnshire – you may have vital information that could lead us to Alan’s killers.”

The investigation first featured on Crimewatch in January last year.

The new programme will include investigation updates and new evidence that has come to light over the last 12 months.

A date for its broadcast has not yet been set.

It is believed Mr Wood was tortured to get PIN numbers for bank cards, which were later used in Bourne and Stamford.

Mr Wood, a gardener and worker at Sainsbury’s in Bourne, was bound with sticky tape, stabbed in the head and had his throat cut.
