Rough sleeper found murdered in Darlington

July 03 2010
Post-mortem reveals internal injuries

Police in County Durham are investigating the death of a homeless man found in the grounds of St Cuthbert's Church, Darlington, on 12 June.

The body of George Akers, a 59-year-old with a history of sleeping rough who had recently left a guest house which he had said was too noisy, was found under a tree by St Cuthbert's Church. A post-mortem examination revealed he had suffered internal injuries.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Goundry said: "at this stage we are keeping an open mind on exactly how he came by his injuries." However, the site of Mr Akers's death is being treated as a murder scene.
