A police hunt is underway for a man suspected of killing a disabled man in Wrexham.
Jordan Davidson is wanted on suspicion of the murder of Nicholas Churton, whose body was found at a house in Churton Close on Monday morning.
Three people have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender – and detectives have warned the public not to approach Davidson (25) as he may he armed and dangerous. He was already wanted in connection with several burglaries and robberies.
It’s believed Mr Churton (67) was attacked at some point between 2.45pm last Thursday and midnight on Friday. A post-mortem examination has revealed he died from significant head trauma.
Two people from Old Colwyn – a 35 year-old man and a 27 year-old woman – were arrested during a raid by armed police on a house on Llysfaen Road on Monday evening. Another man, aged 27, from Wrexham is also in custody following a raid on a house on Vernon Street in Rhosddu.
Detective Superintendent Iestyn Davies said: ”Mr Churton lived alone at the property and was partially disabled. He was indeed a vulnerable man. His family have been informed and are being supported by Family Liaison Officers.”
”I believe Jordan Davidson is somewhere in the Wrexham area and the key to locating him is information from the public. If anyone sees Mr Davidson or knows of his whereabouts, I’d ask that they contact police immediately, but under no circumstances should anyone approach him as he may be in possession of weapons.”
”I also want to reassure the public that every effort is being made to locate the suspect. There are increased reassurance patrols in and around the town and people will notice an active police presence as we carry out enquiries.”
Anyone with information about the suspicious death should contact police on 101, quoting reference no. V042465, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
