Ghafoor murder: Mystery letters sent to murdered man’s family released by Notts police

murderedman-thumbPolice have released extracts from mystery letters sent to the family of Ethsham Ghafoor who was murdered 20 years ago in a Gedling car park

After the death of Ghafoor, known to his friends and family as Shami, his family were sent anonymous mail including one with stencilled writing and a card (pictured below)  featuring Wallace and Gromit.

This follows the start of a new appeal by Nottinghamshire police for information into the murder of Ghafoor.

He was found on the morning of 22 November slumped inside his black and white Ford Sierra.

He was shot in the head and body.

DCI Tony Heydon, who is leading the investigation said: “Whoever sent the letter took time and effort to do so.”

“The Wallace and Gromit card seems like quite a strange thing to send to the family of a murder victim.”

Aisha Ghafoor, Ghafoor’s sister, said:

“It’s been 20 agonising years of not knowing why Shami was killed and who was behind it.”

Police have released a £20,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the murder.
