Alan Greaves Murder: Police Issue CCTV
Police have released CCTV footage of two people they want to question in connection with the murder of church organist Alan Greaves.
The 68-year-old was badly beaten as he walked to midnight mass at St Saviour's Church in High Green, Sheffield, on Christmas Eve.
South Yorkshire Police hope the footage, which shows two men near the scene of the murder, will jog someone's memory and lead to information that will help with their investigation.
Detective Inspector Matt Fenwick appealed for the pair to come forward and said he thought they could assist significantly.
He told a news conference in Rotherham: "I am absolutely convinced that someone out there will know who these two are, a mum, a dad, brother, sister, another family member or friend.
"Alan Greaves deserves your help. Alan Greaves' family deserves your help. Please make that call."
DI Fenwick also appealed to anyone living in the High Green area who had found anything in their garden that did not belong there to contact police.
"I am convinced that a weapon was used in this attack. I still have not established a motive for the attack," he said.
"Alan retains all his property, nothing is missing, and my enquiry remains open in relation to identifying a possible motive for the attack."
DI Fenwick described Mr Greaves as "well loved and respected by all who knew him" and said there was nothing in the victim's background to suggest a motive.
More than 50 police officers are working on the murder inquiry, he added.
The father-of-four died in hospital three days after suffering serious head injuries during the attack.
Two men were arrested on December 29 in connection with the murder. They were both released on bail.
