Police hunt sex offender after his girlfriend was found ‘murdered’ in his home

A video depicting a fugitive sex offender enjoying drinks with his girlfriend the night before she was discovered lifeless at his residence has been unveiled by investigators.

Richard Scatchard, 70, and Kelly Faiers, 61, appear like any other couple in the footage recorded at The Duke of Wellington pub in Minehead on October 14.

However, mere hours later, ambulance crews responded to a call at Scatchard’s residence at 4:15 am, reporting that she was critically ill.

Ms. Faiers was declared deceased at the scene, and her boyfriend was interviewed by the police before they departed from the property. However, by Monday afternoon, they had additional queries for him, but upon arrival, the property was found deserted.

Avon and Somerset Police have subsequently disclosed that he is sought for a recall to prison. Detectives are eager to converse with him regarding the murder investigation, which is now delving into the demise of Ms. Faiers.
