Three men have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of David Kingsbury in Old Colwyn.
Two men, aged 30, and a 50 year-old man, all from the local area, are being questioned by detectives following significant developments in the murder inquiry over the last 24 hours. A 38 year-old woman held since Thursday night has been released on bail.
The body of Mr Kingsbury, a 35 year-old labourer, was found near Wellington Road last Thursday evening, after police were called out to a disturbance in Bryn Heulog – a post mortem found he had died from a single stab wound.
Detectives said on Monday they were keen to speak to anyone who saw a silver three-door Vaxuhall Corsa in Old Colwyn between 8.30pm and 9pm that evening, as well as anyone who was travelling on the number 12 bus on Abergele Road around those times.
Detective Inspector Arwyn Jones said: ”This is a fast moving investigation and has developed significantly over the last 24 hours.”
”I would personally like to thank the public for their support and patience during the last few days, and particularly those who have come forward and provided significant information which has assisted in the progression of the investigation in the last 24 hours. With this in mind, I would make a further plea to anyone who may have information that will assist the investigation, but as yet has not come forward, to do so.”
Anyone with information should contact Colwyn Bay police station on 101, quoting reference no. V002232, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
