Sir Richard Sutton and his wife, one of England’s richest men, a hotel mogul and billionaire, were attacked at their home in Upper Langham in Dorset, southern England, on Wednesday. Sir Richard died at home from his stab wounds and his wife was taken to hospital.
On Friday, the 34-year-old suspected perpetrator was arrested after an intervention against a car in London, some 160 kilometers from Sir Richard Sutton’s home. According to witnesses, the police collided with a car to stop it.
The 34-year-old must have been so convinced of the arrest that he had to be taken to hospital.
– The man was injured in the car, and about 20 policemen were around him, shouting “What is your name?” Witness Maureen Kane told Sky News.
The culprit must have known the billionaire
The 34-year-old is a suspect in the murder of Sir Richard and according to investigators, the detainee and the billionaire have known each other since.
The murder investigation is led by the Dorset Serious Crimes Unit and Detective Simon Hoxter.
We’ll investigate exactly what happened at the headline in High Langham, according to Sky News.
According to the Sunday Times, Sutton has a fortune of 3 billion kroner and is among the 500 richest people in the world.
