Police want girl to come forward in Fristock death case

Police have issued a new appeal for information, as part of their investigations into the death of Ryan Morrell in Leicestershire.

In particular, they would like to speak to a girl seen with the 18-year-old late on Saturday 6 July, around an hour before his body was found.

Ryan Morrell was found in a burnt out car in Frisby-on-the-Wreake, on July 7, during the Fristock festival.

We would like to identify and speak to a girl who was seen with Ryan around 11.30pm on Saturday July 6 at the Fristock 2013 music festival.

She has been described as being about 17-years-old, with long brown hair which came down to the middle of her back. She was wearing a knee length summer dress which was fitted in the body and flared out from the waist. It is believed it may have had some flowers in the pattern including orange, yellow and pink colours.

We would like to assure her that she is not in any trouble but we just need to trace all those who may have seen or been in contact with Ryan before his death.

– Detective Inspector Simon Shuttleworth, Leicestershire Police
