Detectives in Bournemouth have made a fresh appeal for help to catch whoever killed a man in the Southbourne area of the town.

42-year-old Glyn Helliwell from Poole was found seriously injured on Parkwood Road at 12.45am on Wednesday, 6th July.

He was taken to Royal Bournemouth Hospital, where he later died.

An inquest was opened and adjourned at 2.25pm on Thursday, 7 July 2011, at the coroner’s court in Bournemouth.

Detective Chief Inspector Kevin Connolly, of Bournemouth CID, said:

“I am appealing for witnesses and anyone with any information about this man’s death to come forward urgently.

“It may be that someone, perhaps several people, may have noticed a commotion or heard a disturbance in the Parkwood Road area and it is important that they get in touch at the earliest possible opportunity.

“Anyone who has information about Glyn’s movements, or intended movements, during the evening of Tuesday, 5 and the early hours of Wednesday, 6 July should also call Dorset Police immediately.

"I would also like to hear from anyone who knew Glyn who has yet to speak with officers.

“Finally, I understand that taxi drivers may have been in the Seabourne Road area, near the Grove Tavern public house, between the hours of 12.15am and 12.30am on Wednesday morning – I would urge any taxi drivers who were in this area to contact me as soon as possible.”
