Police renew appeal for witnesses after murder charge

Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses to come forward, after a 28 year-old man was charged with the murder of David Alun Lewis.

Mr Lewis' body was discovered partially submerged in the River Taff in Cardiff on Wednesday night.

He was last seen on CCTV at approximately 7.45pm on Wednesday walking along Penarth Road near the Big Yellow Storage opposite the BMW garage, wearing light blue jeans, a navy anorak style jacket, and a light coloured baseball cap with the wording ‘cross hatch’.

I would like to thank those people who have come forward with information which has greatly assisted our investigation.

While an individual has now been charged and remains in custody, we are still very much appealing for witnesses.

We would like to speak to anyone who may have been in the vicinity of the bridge on Penarth Road and the Taff Embankment between 7.30pm and 8.30pm on Wednesday, March 19.

I would also urge anyone who may have seen any activity, suspicious behaviour or an altercation on the river bank between these times to please contact the incident room at Cardiff Central Police Station.

– Detective Superintendent Paul Hurley, South Wales Police
