Police Search For Missing Polish Man
The grounds of a former cigarette factory will be searched today (Thursday 16 April 2015) for the body of a murdered Polish man.
Forensic teams will conduct searches of the tunnels in Player Street Radford as they continue looking for the body of Bogdan Nawrocki.
22 year old Bogdan, went missing from his home in Radford on Sunday 5 January 2014 prompting wide scale searches and appeals.
In February 2015 a jury unanimously convicted Robert Marcinkiewicz-Szukowski, of his murder. He was handed a life sentence in jail. Marcinkiewwicz-Szukowski refused to tell the court where he had hidden the body and as yet it remains undiscovered.
Based on information from previous appeals the force will now search the area around Player Street which was the site of a large fire in March 2015. The fire is not thought to be connected to the murder enquiry.
Detective Chief Inspector Tony Heydon, who led the investigation, said: ''We succeeded in seeing justice carried out for Bogdan but despite a vast amount of searches we have been unable to give his family the opportunity to give him the funeral he deserves.
''We are continuing to support Bogdan's family. I said we would not stop looking and these searches are evidence of that. I'm grateful to everyone who has given us information and enabled us to conduct these subsequent enquiries and searches.
''We still have a £5,000 reward for information so if you know anything that could help it's not too late. We continue to appeal specifically to the Polish community who we believe hold the key to finding Bogdan. My officers are ready and waiting for your call and you will be dealt with in confidence.''
