Murder investigation - appeal for witnesses

This still remains an active investigation and we are attempting to piece together Kevin's movements in the hours before his death.

We know he was seen in Wharncliffe Road around 10.30pm and we want to hear from anyone who may have seen or spoken to Kevin between 10.30pm on Friday evening and 2.30am on Saturday when he was found in the alleyway off Defender Road, near to the cut-through with Tankerville Road.

He was wearing a white sweatshirt with blue lettering across the chest, dark trousers and carrying a white carrier bag.
