A man arrested on suspicion of murdering Huntingdon’s Andrew Bedford has been re-bailed by police.
Officers arrested and questioned the 56-year-old man, from Southampton, in January, in connection with Mr Bedford’s killing.
Seven other people were also arrested in connection with the cold case, codenamed Operation Ongar, which was re-launched on April 10 last year by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire major crime unit.
The man has been bailed to return to a Southampton police station on July 6.
The seven others, six men and a woman, were also re-bailed to the same date.
