Investigations continue after homeless man murder

A police cordon along with scene guards will remain around the crime scene in Hove pitch and putt for the next few days whilst extensive forensic examinations continue following the murder of a man in his mid 40s.

The victim's body was discovered by homeless project workers at 8.30pm on Monday.

Detective Chief Inspector Ian Pollard from Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team said: "There was a large amount of items found in the arch where our victim was living. These items include food, drink and lots of bedding and clothing each of which have to be individually forensically examined.

"For this reason, the tents will remain in the pitch and putt course until the end of the week.

"Once again, I appreciate the cooperation and patience of the local residents and would encourage them to speak to our officers if they have any information or any concerns about what has happened."
