UPDATED: Woman in Jim Attfield CCTV comes forward within minutes of appeal

Essex County Standard: Jim Attfield Jim Attfield

A WOMAN who was seen speaking to murder victim Jim Attfield on the night he died contacted police within minutes of police issuing an appeal to speak to her.

CCTV from the River Lodge Pub shows father-of-five Jim speaking to the woman about half an hour before he left at about 10pm.

The officers investigating the brutal murder released CCTV images of the woman this morning, and said they wanted to rule her out of their case.

She came forward and identified herself within minutes of the social media appeal, and detectives will speak to her soon.

Crimestoppers have offered a reward of up to £5,000 for information which leads to an arrest and conviction of Jim's killer.

Anyone with information is asked to call Essex Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

A man and a woman, both aged 27 and from Colchester, are currently on police bail until Friday after being arrested in connection with the murder

What social media request this morning? I can't see it anywhere. Not that it matters now she's spoken up.

She already did tell them before this advert went out! Maybe know the facts before you make silly comments like this! If the police did there job properly they would know she had already informed them she would be on cctv!!

The fact is I said to them when i spoke to them 2 days after it actually happened, "you probably see me on the CCTV speakin to him, I have long blonde hair" - and they cant put 2 and 2 together!? To wake up monday morning with my picture plastered all over twitter and the gazette and people assuming i have had something to do with it is really distressing.

Miss....no one has said you are involved. If the gazette /police delayed the news...then its down to them. I just read the Gazettes updates. Like we all do. Im sure we all want closure on this . Relax.....if youre not involved....youre not involved. Yes , the attention is distressing....but no more for this guy and his family and kids. You done the right thing...well done !
