February 26, 2013, 12:59 pm

Children are invited to become detectives for the day at Essex Police Museum and help solve the murder of Pc George Gutteridge.

Pc Gutteridge was found dead by the side of the road in the Essex village of Stapleford Abbot early one morning in September 1927.

Children aged six and above are invited to take part in a Murder Trail at the museum in Chelmsford between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, March 9, 2013.

Artifacts including bullets and a death mask are on display in the museum.

Becky Wash, Museum Curator said: “The murder of Pc Gutteridge is one of the first cases involving ballistics but now we need the childrens help to finally solve the crime!

“This is a fun and educational activity to do whilst exploring the fascinating displays inside the museum. Successful young detectives will even win a small prize!”

The Murder Trail costs £1 per child. The museum will be open as normal so booking is not required.
