Police linking burned out Land Rover to crossbow murder inquiry as two more arrested

Police are appealing for information on the movements of a Land Rover Discovery before it was discovered burned out in connection with the crossbow murder of Gerald Corrigan

The 74-year-old former university lecturer was shot outside his home on Anglesey on the morning of Good Friday, April 19, 2019.

As part of the inquiry police want to know the movements of the vehicle registration number CX68 YTE.

The car, worth around £35,000, was found burnt out near a quarry at Llanllechid, Gwynedd, on Monday, June 3, and was subsequently reported stolen from an address in Engedi, Anglesey.

So far, four people have been arrested with a further two following the discovery of the Land Rover.

Detective Chief Superintendent Wayne Jones, of North Wales Police (NWP) said: “As part of the investigation into the murder of Mr Corrigan we want to establish the movements of the Land Rover Discovery on June 3.

"I would appeal to anyone who saw this vehicle travelling from Engedi to Llanllechid to contact us”.

On Tuesday, June 25,  as part of the investigation into this arson, two men from the North Gwynedd area were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit arson and assisting an offender. Three local properties linked to them have been searched.

Detective Chief Superintendent Jones added: “The investigation is at an early state and  both men have been released on police bail pending further enquiries. These arrests were in addition to those arrested in connection with the death of Mr Corrigan.”

Yesterday (Wednesday, June 26)  North Wales Police were granted a further 36 hours to question the four suspects arrested in connection with the death of Mr Corrigan and related offences.

Detective Jones said:  “From our enquiries to date all indications are that Gerald Corrigan was deliberately targeted and shot outside his home address.

"I am extremely grateful to those who have already come forward with information, but I am certain there are people in our community with key information who have yet to contact us. I appeal to them to please come forward and speak to us in total confidence.”
