Victim 'may have known killers'
Trevor Bradley
Mr Bradley was an antiques dealer
Detectives investigating the murder of a man whose body was found in his burnt out car 13 years ago believe he may have known the killers well.

West Mercia Police, which has opened a "cold case" review into Trevor Bradley's death, think several people were involved.

The body of Mr Bradley, from Ludlow, Shropshire, was found in the north west of the county on 27 April 1994.

Det Insp Andy Parsons said several lines of inquiry were being examined.

'Killers panicked'

Mr Parsons, who is leading the review, said: "We are currently working on the strong possibility that there was more than one person involved in the death and that they were well known to Mr Bradley.

"We can't rule out the possibility that his death resulted from a confrontation which went too far and that those concerned panicked to dispose of any evidence which might connect them to the incident."

Mr Bradley, 53, travelled across the county buying and selling antiques.

Police are offering a 10,000 reward for information which helps solve the mystery.
