Darkness descends…

I don’t usually repost our witness appeals as the relevant section on the force’s website does the job well enough without me, having noticed though that quite a few people are finding my blog after searching for information on yesterday’s tragic murder of Christina Edkins, a few words here would seem useful.

The best sources of up to date information on the incident remains our website and official Twitter feed, @WMPolice, and so that’s where you need to look first and foremost.

Going from today’s press release, detectives investigating the attack are keen to trace the movements of the suspect before and after the stabbing itself which occurred on the number nine bus on Hagley Road, Birmingham, at around 07:30 yesterday morning.

A male was arrested under suspicion of murder shortly afterwards, he has been described as black, in his early twenties, carrying a white bag and wearing a distinctive ‘tiger print’ jacket as pictured above.

Officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with the stabbing, however the weapon used in the attack is yet to be located and members of the public providing officers with possible sightings may well narrow down the search for this very important piece of evidence.

If you recall seeing a male matching the above description, were on the number nine bus or can provide any other information on the incident then please don’t hesitate to call us on 101.

People help the people…

Above is a short video relating to the investigation into the double murder of Avtar Kolar and Carole Kolar in Handsworth Wood on Wednesday January 11th.

As has been stated in the press release issued recently, a large team of detectives are working on the case and are keen to hear from anyone who spoke to or heard from the couple at any point after 19:15 on Tuesday the 10th, or were in the area at the time.

Detailed forensic analysis is currently being conducted at the crime scene and a postmortem due to take place to establish the exact cause of death.

Anyone with information that could assist the enquiry is asked to call Force CID in Birmingham by calling the new non-emergency telephone number, 101, and asking for officers working on Operation Tiler, or by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Thoughts are with the family at this very difficult time.
