New CCTV footage has been released of the last known movements of Liam Hill before he was murdered.

The 44 year-old man is seen leaving the Bar Bow on Water Street two days before his body was found by his mother at a flat on West Parade in Rhyl. Last week, Crimestoppers offered a £10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of his killer.

The footage shows Mr Hill walking out of the bar at around 6.30pm on Wednesday 6th January – he walked up Water Street before turning left towards his flat, where he was last seen alive around 40 minutes later.

That evening, the Bar Bow was screening the first leg of the Capital One Cup semi final between Everton and Manchester City.

Earlier footage of Mr Hill seen walking along Bodfor Street that afternoon revealed that he was wearing black denim jeans and a dark blue Columbia embossed jacket.

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 their investigation began. Road checks also took place near Mr Hill’s flat in a fresh attempt to establish his last known movements.

Superintendent Mark Pierce, the area commander, said: ”Whilst there may be some within the community who did not witness any act of violence, we still need help to piece together Mr Hill’s movements and whereabouts in the two days leading up to the discovery of his body on January 8. Any piece of information, no matter how insignificant you may think it is, may help.”

”Our appeal is for any sightings or knowledge of his whereabouts at any time between 3pm on Wednesday January 6 and when his body was found shortly before 2pm on Friday January 8.”

Anyone with information should contact the St Asaph incident room on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 and quote Operation Panatella. Alternatively, contact the police control room via the live web chat.
