Police re-appeal for information three weeks on from murder of Colin Richards

THIS weekend marks three weeks since father of seven Colin Richards was murdered in Ely, Cardiff.
He was found unconscious in Snowdon Road, Ely, following a report of a disturbance in the Heol-Y-Berllan and Heol Trelai area of Caerau shortly before 11.30pm on Sunday, April 7.
Despite the best efforts of emergency services, Colin, 48, died from a fatal stab wound. His family continue to be supported and updated by specially trained family liaison officers.
Enquiries are continuing nationally and locally for Cardiff men James O’Driscoll, 26, who is known as ‘Jimmy’, and Corey Gauci, 18, who are both still wanted on suspicion of murder.
The public is warned not to approach either suspect, but to contact police with any information on their whereabouts.
Crimestoppers is offering two £10,000 rewards for information given exclusively to the charity that leads to their arrests.
Detective Superintendent Darren George, of the force’s Major Crime Team, said: “Extensive enquiries are continuing locally and nationally to arrest those suspected of being involved in the murder of Colin Richards and also anyone who might be assisting them.
“To assist anybody who is wanted for questioning over a crime can lead to prosecution.
“In the last three weeks, loyalties and allegiances may have changed, and we would remind anyone with information that two £10,000 rewards are on offer for information given exclusively to the charity Crimestoppers that leads to the arrest of Jimmy O’Driscoll and Corey Gauci.”
A 33-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender is on police bail. Three women, two aged 43 and one aged 28, arrested on suspicion of murder are released under investigation.
