Julia James: The man whose photo was shared on the identified PCSO murder | UK News

A man whose photo was shared as part of an investigation into the PCSO murder Julia James has been identified – and Kent Police are no longer seeking information about him.

Deputy Chief Constable Tom Richards said, “As throughout the investigation, the power of the public and their support aided this investigation and I want to take this opportunity to thank them for reaching out to help us.

“I can confirm that we have identified the man in the photo and that we no longer need the media to broadcast his image, nor do we need any additional information about him at this time.”

Ms James, 53, died of serious head injuries while walking her dog Toby near Akholt Wood in Snowdown.

Crimestoppers offers a reward of up to £ 10,000 for anonymous information which led to the conviction of his killer.

Earlier this week, police also released an image of the PCSO in the clothes she wore before being killed.

The photo showed Ms James walking her Jack Russell while wearing a light blue waterproof coat, blue jeans and dark brown Wellington-style boots.

Police said it was the same clothes, other than the gloves, that she was wearing on the day she died.

Mr Richards said Kent Police still need to hear from anyone in the Aylesham Road area between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday April 27 – the day Ms James died.

Detectives also want to hear from “any local person who may have seen something inappropriate at the time or bumped into someone who made them uncomfortable – such as feeling pressured to cross the road or to change the route on which they were walking “.

The deputy chief constable added: “Despite the identification of this person, we are still eager to hear from those who have information that could help us.”
