MURDER accused James Spencer has lived in Huddersfield all his life.
His parents, Margaret Wheeler and the late Peter Spencer, lived at Fleet Street in Scissett when he was born at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary on June 24, 1984.
Peter Spencer was a builder who came originally from Holmfirth. Margaret now lives at Lidgett Lane in Skelmanthorpe.
James Spencer was a pupil at Shelley College until he left aged 16.
He played for Honley Band at the 2006 Honley Feast Fun Day and was pictured in the Examiner at the time, holding his tuba at the community event.
Police continue to maintain a presence at the Skelmanthorpe house where pensioner Peter Green was found dead.
Searches are continuing at the house on Lidgett Lane after the grim discovery early on Sunday morning.
Yesterday a policewoman stood at the entrance to the terraced property where the alleged murder took place.
Its front door was still covered with black plastic.
A police car was parked nearby on the quiet lane of terraced houses.
The house where 65-year-old Mr Green was found is just a short distance away, round the corner from where he lived in the same village.
The incident has stunned members of the quiet community.
Neighbour Peter Brook said: “I’ve seen the lad about and he seemed pleasant enough, a bit quiet but polite.”
Mr Green, 65, was found dead at the property at 5.20am on Sunday.
The murder investigation is being carried out by a number of detectives from West Yorkshire Police’s Homicide And Major Enquiry Team.
The team is being led by Det Supt Tim Forber.
