Crimestoppers reward offered by Lincolnshire Police in Adam Bailey murder investigation in Sleaford





A £1,000 reward is now available for information which leads to an arrest and charge over the death of a man.

It is being offered as police believe that people are not coming forward with information which could help their investigation into the death of Adam Bailey.

The 49-year-old was found dead at his home in Tamer Road in Sleaford, on February 16.

The reward is being offered via the charity Crimestoppers.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “Information including videos, which are submitted through Crimestoppers, always remains completely anonymous. We will never know it was you who sent in the information.

“We’re taking this step as we believe that there may be people who have information about Adam's death who aren’t coming forward directly to police.

“If your information leads to an arrest and charge, you will receive the money directly from the charity.”

Police issued a second picture of Sleaford murder victim Adam Bailey, believed to have been taken on February 11. Mr Bailey was found dead on February 16.

Detectives are keen to find out about Mr Bailey’s movements in the days before he died.

The spokesman added: “We're particularly interested in information about interactions Adam had, or sightings of Adam, between 9 February and 12 February, but would be keen to hear about anything up to February 16 when he was sadly found dead.”

He was known to frequent the Tamer Road and Boston Road areas of Sleaford.

Crucially, police want to establish if Mr Bailey was alive after Monday February 12.

They already know he was alive on February 11 when he was seen at Riverside pharmacy. He was found on February 16.

A spokesman said: “A key part of our investigation is to determine when he was last seen alive. We believe he may have still been alive on or after February 12, but we need information to confirm this.”

Police want people to look back through pictures and videos they may have taken in and around the Tamer Road or Boston Road areas between the key dates.

“It could be that you captured him in the background and we’d ask that you check you pictures to see if that’s the case,” added the spokesman.

Three people have previously been arrested on suspicion of murder and bailed. They incude two 16-year-old boys and a 34-year-old man.

Footage and information can be submitted through the dedicated Major Incident Public Portal (MIPP) or Crimestoppers-uk.org

Anyone doing so should reference incident number 205 of February 16.
