THE masked gang who broke into Leeds business tycoon John Luper's home stole his wallet as he lay dying during a midnight raid on his mansion.
The millionaire's burgundy wallet contained his credit cards and a substantial amount of cash that he had recently withdrawn in preparation for a business trip.
The wallet, cards or cash have not been seen since the attack. It is thought the killers also escaped with jewellery worth more than £100,000.
The 57-year-old sports agent was attacked outside his £900,000 Alwoodley mansion as he walked his dog.
The four men dragged his 16-stone body inside, bound him with silver duct tape.
His wife, Iyican, daughter Liza-Rose, 20, and an au pair were tied up upstairs.
The gang are thought to have been looking for a huge stash of diamonds which they believed Mr Luper had hidden in his home.
Months earlier, a gang had broken into the house. Police believe the same group may be responsible for the latest attack.
Mr Luper, a non-executive director of the Sports Entertainment Media Group, which represents footballers Thierry Henry and Rio Ferdinand, is understood to have told friends that during the last raid on his home the gang had demanded diamonds from him.
During the fatal raid at his home the masked men searched the mansion for over an hour before escaping with cash and jewellery.
Police say one of the raiders was black and at least 6ft tall. He was muscular, with a Yorkshire accent.
A second raider was between 5ft 3in and 5ft 6in and of slight build. He is believed to be of mixed race or a light-skinned black man.
Mr Shackleton says officers think the gang had parked a getaway car a short distance from the house.
In a bizarre twist, the raiders fed Mr Luper marmalade as he laid bound. It is thought that Mr Luper could have suffered a diabetic fit and the gang fed him the preserve to try to revive him.
