Police have started a murder investigation, after a man was stabbed to death in Northampton.

Jon Casey, a 35-year-old dad of two from Ecton Brook in the town, was found stabbed in Barrack Road, near the Lazeez restaurant, just before 5.30pm on Friday (January 16).

He was taken to Northampton General Hospital but died of his injuries around an hour later.

A post mortem investigation has been carried out to find out the cause of death - these results haven't been published yet.

Detective Inspector Mark Brayfield, from Northamptonshire Police, said detectives were now following a number of lines of inquiry.

He said: "This was a brutal and ultimately fatal attack and we would urge anyone in the area at the time and who may have seen anything suspicious to come forward.

"We are very keen to know of Mr Casey’s movements in the hours leading up to his death."
