Deaths in Northampton

Following the terrible murder of the family of Pioneer Close, Wootton, Northampton over the bank holiday weekend, we are appealing to local and national communities for any information which may help us understand the circumstances of their deaths.    

We strongly believe that the family are the Ding family who reside at that property, who were 46 year old father Jifing Ding (known locally as Jeff), 47 year old mother Ge Chui (Helen), 18 year old daughter Xing Ding (Nancy) and 12 year old daughter Alice Ding. 


Police urgently need to trace a Vauxhall Corsa car registration BG60 PMO.  This is a silver five door model. It was believed to be last at the address on Friday the 29th April.   The car was hired to the family, but is not at the address and its whereabouts are currently unknown.  

We are also looking for 52 year old Anxiang Du, a businessman from the West Midlands area who has business dealings with the family.  Mr Du is described as 5ft 9ins tall and of slim build. He is believed to live in Coventry and work in Birmingham.  He was last seen wearing a white baseball cap, brown waist length coat, grey trousers, a blue woollen top, black leather shoes and carrying a rucksack.  Mr Du was seen arriving at Northampton train station at approx. 12.35pm on Friday 29th April.


The Silver Corsa may be with Mr Du and we would ask members of the public to neither approach the vehicle nor Mr Du, but to report the sighting immediately to the police on 999 at any time.
