Cops hunt killers of World War Two veteran who died from two brain bleeds after brutal burglary

The Sun Incident 1 month ago

COPS have re-launched the appeal into a violent burglary that led to the death of a World War Two hero.

Peter Gouldstone was found with severe bruising and a head injury after a burglary at his home in Arnos Grove, North London, last November on Bonfire Night.

The 98-year-old veteran died two weeks later, after suffering two bleeds on the brain.

Earlier this year police released CCTV images showing two men entering the back garden of a property, in Bounds Green, North London, that night, at about 8.30pm.

The men can be seen peering through windows and trying to prise open doors before leaving the scene.

Police believe that a 26-inch television, worth about £50, was stolen.

Peter’s son Simon said at the time: “His TV was gone and the place was a mess – he was semi-conscious and he couldn’t speak or move, he was clearly agitated.

“It was clear he had been beaten badly, he had bruises everywhere and was bleeding from his head.

“I called the police and they were there in minutes – I am thankful for them and the ambulance service.

“My father has always been supportive, he was a peaceful and supportive person.”

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Wrigley said: “At this time of remembrance, I appeal to the public to come forward with any information that could help us identify those responsible for the death of Peter Gouldstone, who was one of those brave and selfless people that Remembrance Day honours.

“The television stolen from Mr Gouldstone’s home has never been recovered.

“I hope that the passing of 12 months will allow people to look at the images with fresh eyes, and perhaps, anyone who was reluctant to come forward at the time may now feel able to speak out.

Two men, aged 26 and 27, were arrested on suspicion of murder in December 2018 and January this year.

Both are currently released under investigation.
