Parklife Murder: New Images Released
 

POLICE hunting Robert Hart's killer have released five new images of potential witnesses.

“The time at which they were photographed, the area they were stood, the direction they were facing and their proximity to the area where Robert was standing all suggest that they may well be crucial eyewitnesses."

Robert Hart was knocked unconscious in a 'brutal attack' at Parklife Festival in Heaton Park on Saturday 7 June 2014 just before US rapper Snoop Dogg took to the stage.

He died five days later with a bleed to the brain.

On 22 July 2014 Greater Manchester Police issued an appeal via BBC's Crimewatch. As a result of the programme officers managed to track down ten of twelve people they believed could hold information about Hart's killer and the people he was with.

Police still want to speak to the other two and have released five new images (below), including three additional witnesses, of people they believe may hold crucial information.

DCI Phil Reade said: “Our trained officers have examined a huge amount of pictures and video footage sent in by festival goers and have determined that these people may well be of assistance to our investigation.

“The time at which they were photographed, the area they were stood, the direction they were facing and their proximity to the area where Robert was standing all suggest that they may well be crucial eyewitnesses and could even have captured a picture of the man responsible or the people he was with.

"One of these people could hold the key to unlocking this investigation without even knowing it.

“Obviously, obtaining evidence such as that would represent a big step forward in this investigation and take us closer to catching the man responsible for this attack.

“The new pictures of the two women previously unidentified from past appeals should prove much more helpful in finding out who they are.

“I would urge them, or indeed any of the other three people pictured in this new appeal, to come forward and speak to us as soon as possible.

“One thing we have learned from speaking to the other ten witnesses is that any small piece of information could potentially prove useful to Police.


“One of those witnesses did not come forward initially as they believed that they would not be able to provide anything new to the investigation, which was simply not the case.

“Their witness statements provided new details that were previously unknown to officers, which proves that no piece of information is too small and that it is vital for witnesses to come forward should they think they know anything at all about the attack.”

Anyone with information can contact the incident room direct on 0161 85 69283 or email the incident room on mit.syndicate8@gmp.police.uk with any relevant footage.

Alternatively you can call police on 101 or independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
