He had sustained injuries to his head and face, including black eyes, a split cleft lip, a further cut to his lip, a deep cut to his cheek and other cuts to his body. Police are describing his death as 'unexplained'

"We're totally devastated and heartbroken. He's our Dad. He should have lived another 20 years, he was too young and that's why he hung on for another 12 days in the hospital without food or water. We were by his bedside day and night"

– Joanne Wyard, Daughter

"We want to be able to provide his family with the answers that they deserve and so I am appealing to anyone who believes they have any information at all that could assist our investigation to come forward. This includes people who believe they know of other individuals who may have been in that area on the night in question.

"We continue to keep an open mind as to what may have taken place and are appealing to anyone who believes they saw Mr Wyard walking along Colchester Road or Valley Road, between 12.15am and 7.15am on Friday 20 July to contact us.
