“If you are worried about calling police, call anonymously through Crimestoppers – they are not part of the police and they will not even ask for your name. Your call could prevent another family living with the heart-wrenching pain of losing a loved one to murder.
“The location of the incident is a busy, heavy footfall area where people were out to eat and shop. If you were in the area you may have seen something, or perhaps you took pictures or video around the time of the incident – was there anything suspicious going on in the background? If you have any information, no matter how small, please do get in touch.”
