“We are aware of reports that Philip was assaulted prior to his death and have been making extensive enquiries, including going house-to-house in the community, to gather information which could help us to secure justice.

“We know people in the community will have information about what has happened and I urge you to make contact and tell us what you know. If you don’t feel comfortable speaking to us directly, you can contact Crimestoppers and remain completely anonymous. We will never know who the information came from.”
