Det Insp Andy Shearwood, from Thames Valley Police’s Major Crime unit, said: “A team of detectives is continuing to work to establish the circumstances of how Hang Yin Leung died. I believe there are likely to have been between four and six men ‘cold calling’ on doors in the area.

“I would still urge anyone who saw anything suspicious or any vehicles you did not recognise between the hours of 4pm and 8pm on Tuesday 31 January in Orne Gardens or the surrounding area to contact police. Your information, regardless of how insignificant you believe it may be, could be important to the investigation.”

The offender who came to the door is white, 6ft 2 ins, of large build, with a wide face, wearing a baby blue sweater with a high neck and jeans. He was also wearing fingerless gloves.

The other men were white, with their faces covered. All were wearing dark tops and jogging bottoms or jeans.
