Murder suspect arrested in Colne is named
2:31pm Thursday 9th August 2012 in News
A MAN who has been arrested on suspicion of murder in Colne has been named as Clem Callaghan.
His wife, Eileen Callaghan, 76, was found dead at her and her husband’s house in Ivy Bank Lane, Haworth, the day after Mr Callaghan was discovered unconscious at the wheel of his car following an apparent suicide attempt.
Eighty-year-old Mr Callaghan is a member of the Royal British Legion and a well-known village stalwart.
Last night he remained in a ‘serious but stable’ condition in hospital after he was found in Keighley Road, Colne, on Saturday night.
Alan Watts, a Haworth parish councillor, said: “It is such a tragedy.
“I was speaking to someone who said she hadn’t been right well for the past week or two. Whether she had become worse, I don’t know.”
