Police investigating the murder of Laurence Shaw have asked anyone who may have seen a blue Citroen van on the day he was last seen to come forward.

Earlier this week a murder investigation was launched after the body of the 56-year-old was found at his home in Hillmount Gardens in Larne.

A 39-year-old man arrested on suspicion of Mr Shaw’s murder remains in police custody.

Speaking about the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Geoffrey Boyce said: “Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the murder of Mr Shaw who was last seen alive on the afternoon of Sunday October 8.

“We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen a blue coloured Citroen Berlingo van in the vicinity of Mr Shaw’s home, at Hillmount Gardens, on Sunday October 8.

“We would also like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed a blue coloured Citroen Berlingo van being driven erratically that same day in the Larne area, or in the direction of Ballymena and Ballynure.”

Anyone with any information can contact police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting the reference 687 with the date 09/10/2017. Information can also be given through independent charity Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
