Detectives investigating the murder of James Brindley in Aldridge on Friday night (23 June) are appealing for two men who approached James moments before his death to come forward.
Detective Inspector Jim Munro, from force CID, said: “We’ve have already had a really good response following our appeal yesterday and have spoken to a number of witnesses.
“We have received some information about two men who were seen by the entrance to ‘The Croft’ near to the entrance on the Little Aston Road side just before the attack.
“We’ve also been told that James was seen having a disagreement with these two men moments before he was stabbed.
“These men were seen to run off into The Croft in the direction of Rookery Lane/Whetstone Lane.
“I would urge these men or anyone who knows who they are to contact police as soon as possible. James’ family are devastated and we need to bring those responsible to justice.”
A post mortem examination revealed that James died from a stab wound to his heart.
Information can be given by calling 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
