The family of Surrey man, Jesse Richards, have spoken of their pain over his death and have re-issued an appeal in the hope to find his body five years after his death.
Jesse Richards was killed in Cleeve Prior near Evesham on Friday 31stÂ July 2009 over a drugs debt.Â Despite five men being jailed in connection with his death in April 2012 for more than 58 years his body was never found.
Mr Richards was 41-years-old when he was killed and left behind a wife and three children.
His family have today re-appealed on the fifth anniversary of his death for information from the public to trace his body.Â Jesseâ€™s mother, Lucy Richards, said:
â€œI ask anyone with information as to the whereabouts of my son to come forward and give me the opportunity to be re-united with him.
â€œI have been in a constant state of grief since the day he died and five years after his death the pain is still unbearable.
â€œMy life has been changed forever and it is something I do not wish on anybody.Â I ask those individuals who know what happened to him to contact police so he can be brought home.â€
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Loader led the investigation for West Mercia Police.
â€œFirstly I would like to remind the public that a Â£10,000 reward is available for any information which leads to the successful discovery of Jesseâ€™s body.
â€œOn a separate note this was a brutal attack on an unarmed man and I ask those who do possess information regarding his body to think of those who continue to suffer long after his death.Â I urge them to come forward to police so Jesse and his family can be re-united.â€
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police non-emergency 101 number.
