An inquest into Mr Wrighton's death has been opened and adjourned, and the medical cause of death was recorded as "incised wounds to the neck".

The victim's two dogs stayed by his body until it was found by a passer-by among thick nettles and undergrowth.

Detectives revealed they had managed to piece together some of the last moments of the 83-year-old former British Telecom worker's life, with security camera footage showing him at Kenninghall Post Office between 10.08am and 10.12am on Saturday, August 5 - the day of his death.

He said officers were appealing specifically to three men who police are yet to trace as potential witnesses. He had been out walking his dogs at the time.

The local man in his 20s was arrested on suspicion of murder on Saturday morning and was being held in custody.

A witness went to police saying that two elderly men had been seen arguing in the woodland shortly before Mr Wrighton was killed, the Daily Mail reported.

Police say the motive remains unclear and are investigating the possibility the "brutal" attack was random.

"These people are: White man, aged over 50, of a slim build with pale skin with grey or white hair which is balding on top".

They also said they needed the "agreement of the coroner's officer" to release the identity of the victim.

Norfolk Police said it is not yet known whether the Banham man knew his killer, and said they have received more than 100 calls in the past three days in connection to the murder. He is of athletic build with short dark wavy hair and dark eyes.

"We know that Peter's family and the people of the local area want to understand and we want to help them to do that". It is believed he was wearing a blue t-shirt and grey floppy, gym-style shorts above the knee, and heavyduty flip-flops.

He added: 'Inquiries are continuing regarding the incident and detectives ask that anyone with information should contact Norfolk Police immediately'.
