A Gosport man was battered to death in a brutal attack in his own home.
The murder came two months after taxi driver Robert Heslam was beaten up.
Friends and neighbours said Mr Heslam, 59, was a ladies’ man who may have had several women friends.
Gosport police launched a murder inquiry after his battered body was found in his front room by a female visitor.
Mr Heslam had suffered severe head injuries and was believed to have been beaten to death with a heavy object.
Home Office pathologist Bill Kennard carried out a post-mortem examination on the body at Gosport War Memorial Hospital to establish the cause of death.
Mr Heslam’s home was sealed off as forensic experts examined the property.
