Murder of Barry Rubery - Can YOU Help?

Barry Rubery

On the evening of Wednesday April 28 2010, Barry George Rubery was killed by unknown offenders.

He had returned to his home (Crossing Cottage) on the Latteridge Road, Iron Acton following a dinner with friends at around 10:45pm. He was found the following morning by a friend.

Barry had suffered serious head injuries and his hands and legs were bounded together with cable ties.

The 68 year old dad of two was a well liked and well respected member of the community. His home occupied a large area of land, on which he would rent out storage units. It is not known why anyone would want to kill him.

Extensive investigations continue and a dedicated team remain on the case examining witness statements and information in a bid to bring to justice those people who carried out this crime.

Officers would appeal to anyone who has information to come forward and help.
