Two arrests as part of murder investigation

28 Jul 2021

A further two people have been arrested on suspicion of murder following the discovery of a body in a north Bedfordshire village.

Kamil Leszczynski, 33, of Knox Road, Wellingborough, was discovered on 1 July at around 4.30pm close to a farm track in fields off Turvey Road, between the villages of Carlton and Turvey.

On Wednesday (21 July) officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit (MCU) arrested a man in his 40s and a man in his 30s, both from the Northamptonshire area, in connection to the incident.

Detective Superintendent Ian Simmons, from MCU, leading the investigation, said: “While we have made two further arrests in the case, we are continuing to appeal for anyone with any information to come forward.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who knew Kamil, had knowledge of his whereabouts in the lead up to 1 July, or if you have any knowledge of the fields where his body was found.

“No matter how insignificant a piece of information seems, it could play a vital role in our investigation, so please get in touch.”

One man has been released on bail and the second was released under investigation, as police enquiries continue.

If you have any information, call 101 or report it via the Bedfordshire Police online reporting centre.
