Three taken into custody as Suffolk police continue investigations.

Three more suspects have been arrested following the fatal stabbing of Peter Avis who owned Collins & Son jewellers in Bury St Edmunds.

An 18-year-old man from Bury St Edmunds has been arrested on suspicion of murder and conspiracy to commit burglary, while a 26-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit burglary.


These fresh arrests follow the earlier arrests of two men in their 30s who were both taken in by police on suspicion of murder.

Avis, who was aged 66, was found dead at the flat above his shop in Bury St Edmunds on Friday morning. A post-mortem has concluded that he died from stab wounds which police believe were inflicted during a robbery in which a number of pieces of jewellery were stolen.
