POLICE have vowed to continue exploring any new evidence which may bring to justice those responsible for the murder of a postman.

Paul Savage was beaten to death with a wooden baton while making his delivery round in Mold on February 4, 2003.

His killers have never been brought to justice.

Detective Superintendent Iestyn Davies of North Wales Police said: "The Investigation into an unsolved murder is never closed and North Wales Police will continue to explore any new evidence or intelligence that may assist bring justice to Paul’s family.

"We will also explore any advances in DNA evidence and to this end I have recently asked our crime scene manager to conduct a further review of the forensic material gathered to establish the possibility of any fresh evidence being obtained.

"Paul’s mother June will also be visited and updated by officers from the Major Incident Team but at this time there is insufficient to justify a reinvestigation.

“Paul’s death was subject of a full investigation in 2003 and 2009 and we would dearly like to bring to justice those responsible, not just for the sake of his family and friends but also the local community and North Wales Police.

"I’d therefore encourage anybody who has any new information about his murder to speak to us.

"I understand people are sometimes reluctant to come forward years after such a serious crime, but I'd like to reassure them we are only interested in securing that vital piece of information that will help bring this investigation to a positive conclusion.

"There may be some who are keeping vital information linked to Paul’s death to protect others, and I am convinced that answers still rest in the community and so I’d urge those people to search their conscience and come forward and speak to us.”

Mr Savage died in Wrexham Maelor Hospital aged 30, after he was found lying beside his delivery bike in the snow on Clayton Road with his mailbag alongside him.
