Stephen Frith, 58, was found dead in his flat in Tarring Road, West Worthing just before 5.30pm on October 27, 2017, police said.

He had sustained serious injuries consistent with a physical assault, according to police.

Three people who were arrested by police on suspicion of murder on April 11, 2019, have been released under investigation, a spokesman confirmed.

They are a 20-year-old man and two women aged 23 and 49.

A 39-year-old man, also arrested at the time, is no longer being treated as a suspect, confirmed police.

In an emotional appeal issued last year, Stephen’s father Ian Frith described his son, a former jockey, as a ‘gentle’ man.

Anyone with information about his murder is asked to report online or call 101 quoting Operation Clyde.
