Appeal to catch father's killer
Keith Frogson
Keith Frogson died from head injuries
The family of a man found dead near his home in Nottinghamshire have appealed for help in catching his killer.

Keith Frogson, 62, was attacked on his way home from a pub in Annesley Woodhouse on 19 July.

Police say Mr Frogson's head injuries were caused by a sharply bladed weapon, and that a crossbow recovered nearby could have been used in the attack.

Mr Frogson's son Wayne told a press conference on Tuesday, anyone shielding those responsible are just as guilty.

'Successful inquiry'

He said: "Neighbours said they felt safe with dad around, and he would do anything to help anybody.

"He loved his family, especially his grandchildren."

On Monday evening, police returned to the murder scene to ask local people and drivers for help in piecing together Mr Frogson's movements before the attack.

Inspector Barry Harper from Nottinghamshire Police said: "I'm sure there will be some new leads that will come as a result of it. It was a very successful inquiry".
