Family’s hope in finding answers on Dad’s death in Downham Market

The family of a Downham man who died in 2010 have said recent developments in the investigation have given them "renewed hope".

Relatives of Jan Hogan have also continued to urge anyone with information to come forward, in the week marking the eighth anniversary of his death.

Mr Hogan's body was found in his flat in Basil Drive on May 23, 2010, and while the incident was investigated at the time, a coroner recorded his death as an open verdict in 2011.

Last month, police arrested two men, aged in their 40s and 50s, in connection with his death.

Both were questioned by detectives and released under investigation while enquiries continue.

In a statement, Mr Hogan's family said: "Today we mark another year of dad's death, a day which despite the passing of time never gets any easier.

"Dad was a loving, funny and intelligent man who never failed to provide for his family and we miss him everyday.

"Recent developments in the investigation have given us renewed hope in finding answers and we would urge anyone who knows anything about his death to come forward and speak to police.

"Help us get justice for our dad."

Det Insp Stuart Chapman, from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, said: "We continue to follow a number of lines of enquiry concerning Mr Hogan's death.

"I would appeal to anyone who has information regarding this – no matter how insignificant it may seem or even if you have spoken to or called us before – to come forward."

Anyone with information concerning this case should contact the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team on 101.
