Detectives investigating the death of a Nottinghamshire man have found a crossbow near the scene of the killing.

A post mortem examination revealed Mr Frogson had suffered serious head injuries and one or more sharp weapons were used in the attack.

Unprovoked attack

A murder incident room has been set up at Mansfield police station and officers say several witnesses have already come forward reporting hearing a disturbance on the street.

Det Ch Insp Russ Foster, from Nottinghamshire police, said: "We're still trying to establish a motive and, if members of the public have got any information to help us establish that motive then that'll help us take the inquiry forward.

"He was an upstanding member the community. He was a 62-year-old man.

"As far as we're concerned at the moment, it's a totally unprovoked attack."

Officers have conducted a fingertip search of the street and nearby gardens.
