Colchester: Photo Released In 15 Year-Old Murder Case
15 years after a murder in Colchester and police have released a photo of a man who they think can help them.
30-year-old Grant Byrom was stabbed on Boxing Day in 1998.
15 years on and police have released a picture of Michael Donnelly, who they want to speak to.
It's thought he could nowo be living abroad.
Detective Inspector Anne Cameron said: "A murder case is never filed and we are still actively trying to progress this investigation.
"It has been 15 years since Grant Byrom was murdered in Colchester and his family along with the community have the right to see justice for this callous act.
"Michael Seamus Donnelly is wanted on suspicion of murder and although detectives do make regular enquiries to trace him we are advised that he no longer lives in England.
"We are keen to locate Mr Donnelly and want to hear from anyone who has any information about his whereabouts."
Anyone who can help should contact Essex Police on 101 or call Colchester Major Crime office on 01206 576845.
