Crimestoppers are offering a £10,000 reward for information about the unsolved murder of Liam Hill.
It’s six months to the day since the 44 year-old was found dead at his flat on West Parade in Rhyl by his mother – a post-mortem examination ruled that he suffered severe head, lower and upper body injuries in a ”deliberate and sustained attack”.
Crimestoppers’ North West manager Gary Murray, said: ”A man of 44 should not have his life taken away, Liam still had so many years ahead of him. The knock-on effect on the community is also significant, which is why I would ask anyone with information to contact Crimestoppers anonymously.”
”We don’t ask for any personal details, you won’t have to speak to the police, and you won’t have to go to court. Just tell us what you know, not who you are.”
Last month, police released a 46 year-old man and a 41 year-old woman without charge, after they were arrested in connection with the murder last February.
Detectives say they have collected more than 600 exhibits and carried out over 300 house-to-house inquiries since the start of their investigation. Road checks also took place near Mr Hill’s flat in a fresh attempt to establish his last known movements.
Mr Hill, a father-of-one originally from the Wirral, was last seen at the Bar Bow pub on Water Street at around 6.30pm on Wednesday 6th January, before returning to his flat 40 minutes later. He was also captured on CCTV earlier in the afternoon walking along Bodfor Street.
The Crimestoppers reward is valid until September – the charity say it will only be paid out if information passed onto the charity leads to the arrest and conviction of Mr Hill’s killers. Information passed directly onto North Wales Police will not qualify.
