Farnborough Murder: Man Bailed By Police

A man arrested in connection with the death outside the Old Courthouse pub in Farnborough last weekend has been released on bail.

The 37-year-old man from Farnborough was arrested on April 16th and has been bailed until June 14 2012.

An inquiry was launched on Sunday (April 15) after Ray Dibbs, 36 years old, died after being found outside the Old Courthouse pub in Cove Road, Farnborough on Saturday evening (April 14) with a head injury.

The businessman lived with his partner Rachel and their two children Harley, three, and Lily, 10, and Rachel's son Zack, 17.

In a statement she said: ''Ray was a loving partner. He loved his children Harley and Lily and he also loved my eldest son Zack.

''He was a really good friend to all his friends, who worked hard and was a very good businessman.

''I just miss him so much.''

Mr Dibbs' mother and father Roland and Sophia added:

''We are absolutely devastated and this has come as a huge shock to us. We cannot understand how this has happened. Ray was not a violent person or likely to get into any fights.

''He was a very successful businessman who worked hard all his life and has never been out of work. He was very popular and well liked.

''He was also a very good modern father who didn't mind changing nappies and getting involved in bringing up his children.

''Ray's family would like to thank all their friends for their support at this difficult time.''

Detective Chief Inspector Tim Rowlandson said:

 "We continue to appeal to anyone who was in or near the pub before 6.30pm on Saturday night to make contact with us if we haven't already spoken to them."
