Grimsby murder investigation makes fresh appeal

Police have launched a fresh appeal for information exactly two years since a man was found murdered at his home in Grimsby.

Two years ago today (August 15) Peter Craven, 48, was found dead in the front room of his home in Oxford Street.

He had been seriously assaulted and suffered a fatal head injury.

Since then, officers in the Major Crime Team at Humberside Police have been working tirelessly to piece together what happened to him and find the person responsible.

However, despite their ongoing efforts, no-one has been charged with Peter’s murder.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Christine Calvert, said: “This is still very much an active murder investigation and I want to take the opportunity today to appeal for anyone with information to come forward.

“Peter’s family are devastated by his death. They deserve to know what happened to him and to see the person responsible brought to justice.

“Every bit of information you can provide – no matter how small – will help us to build up the bigger picture.”

At the time Peter was described by his family as a “funny, popular club DJ”, known as DJ Elite, who was “passionate about music”.

They said his life “revolved around music” and the family had been left “devastated” by his death.
