The dissected body of Bernard Oliver, 17, from Muswell Hill, north London, was found dumped in two suitcases on farmland in Tattingstone, near Ipswich, on 16 January 1967. No one was ever charged over the inquiry. Two doctors, both now dead, were prime suspects. Now Police have been contacted by a man with new information about the murder. He is believed to have reported seeing two unattended suitcases and a man wearing medical gloves in the Ipswich docks area in the days before the teenager’s body was found.

Tony Oliver (left) was 13 when his brother Bernard (r) was murdered. The investigation was reopened in 1977 but little progress was made. The crime remains one of the most brutal ever investigated by Suffolk police. Local newspapers this morning reported suspicions that young Bernard had been picked up by a gang, taken to a remote house, held against his will and forced to take part in male orgies.

Whatever the truth, Bernard has been denied justice for too long.
