Police puzzled over solicitor's stab death
POLICE admit they are puzzled by how a North-East solicitor came to be fatally stabbed while out jogging.
Peter Maine, 56, was found with three stab wounds to the chest near Maiden Castle, Durham, at 8am on Sunday.
The last previous sighting of the father-of-two, from Wynyard, near Stockton, was on CCTV running along Territorial Lane 20 minutes earlier.
What happened in the period between remains a mystery.
Detective Inspector Lyn Peart said: “We just don’t have a motive for anything at the minute.
“The circumstances are such that we’re going to have to look at every possibility. We are puzzled.”
Anyone with information on Mr Maine’s death is asked to call Durham Police on 101.
