Tairu Jallow, 29, was killed ay his home on Havelock Street on Sunday 14 January at about 9pm. He was attacked by a group of men who entered his home, and died from a stab wound.

Police believe the man pictured could help with the investigation and are urging him to get in touch.

We are now a week on from this tragic incident in Kettering and I know there are people out there who may have seen or heard something, either on the night or since, and who can help us understand exactly what happened in Havelock Street last Sunday night, and how Tairu lost his life.

We know a group of men broke into the property at about 9pm. They then attacked Tairu, who died as a result of a stab wound.

We are following a number of lines of inquiry and have made a number of arrests in connection with the incident, but we still need more information.

Any piece of information, however insignificant it may seem, may provide that vital link and be hugely important to the investigation. If you know anything, please contact us.

A 24-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy arrested on Friday have been released from custody and no further action is being taken in connection with the murder.
