The family of an Old Colwyn man stabbed to death have described him as an affectionate and easy going son and uncle.

The body of David Kingsbury was found near Wellington Road on 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 have been granted more time to question a 38 year-old woman on suspicion of murder.

In a short tribute released on Saturday night, Mr Kingsbury’s family said: ”David was a very loving, affectionate son, brother and uncle with a good heart. We all loved him to bits and will miss his happy, easy going nature, his infectious smile and sense of humour.”

Police say they want to speak to anyone who was in the Aldi car park or at the Co-Op on Abergele Road anytime between 8.30pm and 9pm on Thursday evening.

Detective Inspector Arwyn Jones said he was particularly keen to speak to the driver of a grey/blue vehicle – similar to a Citroen Belingo – and a man and a woman in a silver estate vehicle, who were in the Aldi car park that night.

The woman arrested on suspicion of murder is still being held custody – on Saturday, detectives were granted a further 36 hours to question her. It’s understood police are not looking for anyone else in connection with Mr Kingsbury’s death.

Anyone with information should contact Colwyn Bay police station on 101, quoting reference no. V002232, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
