They also suspect that Ali, from Sheffield, could hold vital information about the death.

Ali was born in Somalia but moved to Sheffield as a child and spent most of his life there before moving to Cleethorpes earlier this year.

He has been described by detectives as a ‘significant suspect’ and ‘dangerous’.

Known as ‘Madman,’ ‘Madders’ and ‘Gulaid’, Ali is thought to have connections in the Pitsmoor and Shirecliffe areas of Sheffield as well as relatives in London. 

He has a gold front tooth, which detectives believe could have been removed to disguise his appearance.

A £5,000 reward for information on his whereabouts has been offered by Crimestoppers.

Anyone with information should call 0800 555111.
