Local officers will be around the City Centre tonight in to tomorrow
DETECTIVES investigating the murder of a Wolverhampton man will be in the area where he was stabbed on Saturday night, to speak to revellers, one week on from the incident.
Local officers will be around the Wolverhampton City Centre on Saturday night/Sunday morning in a bid to trace anyone who may have information and who has not yet come forward in connection with the death of Thomas Kirwan.
Thomas was stabbed outside the Uberra nightclub in the early hours of Sunday 8 July outside the club and was pronounced dead at hospital.
The mother and fiancee of a Wolverhampton have this week made an emotional appeal for anyone who knows anything about his death to come forward and contact the police. Over 14,000 people have viewed the Youtube video of the press conference and police hope this will lead to more people coming forward with information.
Detective Inspector Warren Hines, who is leading the investigation, said: "Investigations are continuing into the death of Thomas, who died following an altercation outside the club. We have carried out searches of the area outside the club and officers are now studying CCTV images from the nightclub and surrounding area.
"We know that up to 600 people were in the Uberra club on Saturday night, many of whom we still need to speak to. I would urge these people to come forward and contact us with any information they may have.”
"I believe there are people who have information about what happened to Thomas and who are maybe shielding people or with-holding information. I would urge these people to search their consciences and contact police.
"Thomas was a well liked and outgoing young man, who worked hard at his job at Bridgnorth Aluminium and was planning to get married next year. He was planninng to set up a local football team in the area and had plans to join the Territorial Army."
"A young man has lost his life and we are determined to catch whoever is responsible.I would urge anyone with information to come forward and contact us before police come knocking.”
Thomas had been to the Uberra Club in the City Centre on Saturday night with a group of friends. It is believed there was an altercation inside the club, which led to a number of people being asked to leave. Outside there was a further altercation, which resulted in Thomas receiving stab wounds.
A number of other people were treated for injuries following the incident.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
