Mr Richards was 41-years-old when he died and left behind a wife and three children.

On the fifth anniversary of his death, his family have appealed for information from the public to trace his body.

Jesse’s mother, Lucy Richards, said: “I ask anyone with information as to the whereabouts of my son to come forward and give me the opportunity to be re-united with him.

“I have been in a constant state of grief since the day he died and five years after his death the pain is still unbearable.

“My life has been changed forever and it is something I do not wish on anybody.

“I ask those individuals who know what happened to him to contact police so he can be brought home.”

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Loader led the investigation for West Mercia Police.

“Firstly I would like to remind the public that a £10,000 reward is available for any information which leads to the successful discovery of Jesse’s body.

“On a separate note this was a brutal attack on an unarmed man and I ask those who do possess information regarding his body to think of those who continue to suffer long after his death.

“I urge them to come forward to police so Jesse and his family can be re-united.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police non-emergency 101 number.
