Police arrest man in connection with the murder of a former Harborough doorman
Police have arrested a 39-year-old man in connection with the murder of a former Harborough bouncer.
David Ross, 39, died following an assault last year.
The doorman’s body was discovered on December 17, at the Village Express Hotel, in Corby.
Northamptonshire Police said a post mortem examination confirmed that Mr Ross died from head injuries following the assault.
Officers arrested the suspect in Corby earlier today.
Members of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit also carried out a number of search warrants at addresses in Corby and Market Harborough, yesterday.
Mr Ross, also known as Les, once worked as a doorman at Harborough’s Enigma nightclub, in Coventry Road.
Detective Chief Inspector Martin Kinchin, who is leading the investigation, said: “The searches and the arrest are amongst a number of active lines of enquiry. We are still particularly interested to speak to anybody who was in contact with Les during 2012.
“We know he confided in different people in his life. He will have told them about aspects of his life, his hopes or concerns. We need those people to come forward and contact us so that we can build a true picture of the life of David Ross.”
