– Detective Inspector Mark Bellamy from CID in Shrewsbury
Although a man has been charged with murder as a result of this investigation, I would once again like to reiterate the fact that we still remain keen to hear from anyone who believes they may have information that could relate to Mr Barlow’s death.
In addition, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those people who have come forward with information so far, while I’d also like to thank local people for their understanding and support as our officers have gone about their investigative work in the Reabrook Avenue area in the past few days.
Police have confirmed that a 19-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Robert Barlow in Shrewsbury.
Mr Barlow died after an incident in the town.
A big investigation was launched when emergency services were called to the Reabrook Avenue area of Shrewsbury after the 64-year-old man was found with injuries.
Mr Barlow was given medical treatment at the scene but he was pronounced dead by paramedics shortly after this.
