Created on Thursday, 13 June 2013 16:07
From Northamptonshire Police:
As the six-month anniversary of Mr Ross’s death approaches, police are once again appealing for any outstanding information from within the Corby community.
Detective Inspector Martin Kinchin, who is leading the investigation, said: “We have gathered a lot of information regarding the last movements of Mr Ross and now have a much better idea of the circumstances that led to his death.
“We are grateful to Les’s family, his friends and many members of the public who have enabled us to build this picture.
“But there are still a few loose ends we are looking to tie up and I believe the answers lie within people who were in The Jamb that Monday morning.
“While Les was quite a private person, we now know he sometimes confided in friends and as a popular man in the in the nightclub arena he spent a lot of time talking with women.
“On the weekend he died he would have spoken to hundreds of people and we are still keen to hear from anybody who spoke to him, particularly women who he often spent longer talking to.”
Detective Inspector Kinchin said there was now more information about the man captured by CCTV crossing Chapel Lane during the early hours of that Monday morning.
He added: “We believe that man entered the car park and got into a Vauxhall Insignia car which was then driven off along Rockingham Road.
“We also believe this man entered the Chocolate Shop in The Jamb at around 7.40am on the day of the murder.
“If you have more information about this man, then please contact the murder incident room on 101.
“We would also like to hear from anyone who was waiting at the bus stop in The Jamb at that time of the morning. If you were in the Jamb, and haven’t spoken to us, please come forward.”
A 39-year-old man from Corby has been arrested and bailed on suspicion of the murder of Mr Ross.
CCTV image is of the man crossing Chapel Lane on the morning of the day David Ross was found dead in Corby's Village Inn Express hotel.

"Les" Ross: new appeal
Created on Friday, 31 May 2013 09:51
Police in Corby are renewing their appeal for information about the murder of David ‘Les’ Ross.
The local businessman would have celebrated his 40th birthday on Saturday (1 June).
DCI Martin Kinchin, of the East Midlands regional Major Crime Team, said: "While this is a challenging investigation, significant progress has been made since December 17.
“It has become apparent that a number of people with information were initially reluctant to come forward through fear of repercussions, but this is changing and more people are now providing useful information.
"I would encourage anybody with any information to come forward and speak to us in confidence, or alternatively to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
Crimestoppers do not collect any personal details of callers, but simply pass on the information to the investigation.
Callers are provided with a PIN number to allow them to anonymously claim the reward on offer for information leading to the conviction of the killer of David "Les" Ross.
It quickly became apparent that Mr Ross was a private person, who only shared limited details of his life and concerns with different people and officers have spent considerable time piecing together this information to form a picture of his life and concerns.
DCI Kinchin identified that there are still a number of potential witnesses who have not been traced.
He added: "We know that there were a number of people waiting for a bus opposite the Village Inn Express that morning who have not been traced and we would ask these people to come forward.”
Police have previously appealed for a person who walked down the Jamb at 0726hrs to come forward.
"This person is shown on CCTV to start to cross the road then change their mind. The person is wearing a hooded top of at least two colours and with a motif on the front to one side."
Police have now released details of another person they are keen to identify. "This is a man who parks a silver or grey Vauxhall Insignia or Vectra car in The Chapel Lane car park and at 0739hrs walks back from The Jamb to the car park and drives away."
"The male appears to be wearing a suit type jacket which he removes before driving away. This man has possibly visited one of the local shops."

British Transport Police (BTP) officers have today released images ( above ) of a man they would like to speak to after a camera was destroyed near Corby station.
PC Michael LeConte, investigating officer said: “On Thursday, 16 May at around 8.50pm, a camera near Corby station was destroyed, along with an alarm system.
“The camera was hit repeatedly by a man with a large stick, and we would really like to speak to him.”
Since the incident, officers have distributed images of the man on police intelligence systems, but so far to no avail. They are now asking the public to help identify the man.
PC LeConte continued: “This was a mindless act of vandalism which significantly damage a camera which we had deployed in the area following an increase in the number of cable theft and trespass offences.
“If anyone recognises the man in the pictures, or the footage, then please get in touch as a matter of urgency.”
Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police by calling Freefone 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference B4/NEA of 30/05/2013. Alternatively, contact the independent charity, Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
