Police continue to hunt for fugitive
Police have released a new picture of a fugitive wanted in connection with the murder of a man 15 years ago today as the victim’s twin sister issued a heartfelt plea for information.
The renewed appeal comes as Crimestoppers mark the anniversary with a £5,000 reward for anyone who comes forward to them with information which helps lead to the arrest of Allan Foster.
Popular dad David ‘Noddy’ Rice, 42, was shot multiple times at close range on May 24, 2006, as he sat in his vehicle at Marsden car park.
He had been lured to the area under false pretences, unaware of the events about to ensue.
After the shooting, two men fled the scene and the father-of-seven was immediately rushed to hospital but later died as a result of his injuries.
It was believed he fled to Spain in the days which followed the fatal shooting and has remained one of the UK’s most wanted fugitives ever since. Anybody with information should contact the police or crime stoppers.
