Southampton Murder Latest Update

Murder Detectives in Southampton are searching for more info, a week on from the murder of a 21 year-old man.

Genny Dauti was found seriously injured in Gilpin Close and later died at Southampton General Hospital


Officers from Southampton East Neighbourhood Policing Team have been patrolling the Thornhill area to gather information about Genny, his life, and his movements leading up to his death.

Detective Chief Inspector Liz Williams said: “We’re looking to piece together the circumstances that led up to Genny being found fatally wounded last Saturday. Were you in the Gilpin Close area on Friday night or in the early hours of Saturday morning? You may have not seen Genny, but you may have seen something that could help us.

“We also want to hear from anyone who knew Genny or who saw him on Friday evening. Even the smallest bit of information will assist our investigation.

“Another priority for us would be to speak to anyone who saw a silver VW Golf in the area on Friday. Were you driving in the Gilpin Road and surrounding areas between 11.30am on Friday and 2am on Saturday with a dash cam in your vehicle? You may have captured footage significant to the investigation.

“We would urge anyone with information to contact us on 101 and quote Operation Siskin.”
