Detectives investigating Sheffield murder issue plea to witnesses and seek CCTV and dashcam footage
Detectives investigating a murder in Sheffield have issued a plea for witnesses to come forward while they seek CCTV and dashcam footage to help them crack the case.
A murder probe was launched following the death of 32-year-old Danny Irons on Fretson Green, Manor, yesterday morning.
He was found seriously injured but could not be saved and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A huge police operation has been mounted to identify and track down his killer, who remains at large this morning.
The crime scene and surrounding streets remain taped off and under police guard today while floral tributes continue to be left by Danny’s heartbroken friends and relatives.
Tributes have also been paid online to Danny, who was a father.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Oughton, leading the police probe, said: “I know this incident will concern the community who live in the Manor area and I’d like to reassure the public that we are doing all we can to find those responsible.
“My appeal today is for anyone who has information about what happened this morning to please come forward and talk to us. Were you in the Fretson Green area either before 12.30am or just after? Did you hear or see anything that was unusual?
“Did you capture any people or vehicles on your CCTV cameras or dash cams? Even something that seems insignificant or routine could be vital to our investigation.”Anyone with information about the murder should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 and quote incident number 29 of April 17.
