Description

Detectives have launched a murder investigation almost three months after a man was found lying on a Moseley road. Phillip Floyd, aged 50, was found lying on Forest Road with serious head injuries at around 10PM on Tuesday 28th January. He sadly died a short time later in Hospital. Initial investigations looked at the possibility that he may have been the victim of a hit-and-run. But following a further post mortem examination, it was concluded that he died after suffering a severe blow to the head. Detective Sergeant Neil Aston, from the force CID, said: “We are now pretty certain that Phillip was not hit by a car but received a blow to the head and was left in the road. We are now treating this as a murder and we are renewing our appeal for information. We have previously released CCTV footage showing two cars driving down the street and a man running along Forrest Road. We would still like to appeal for the drivers and the running man to contact us. The family of Phillip have been made aware of the new developments in the case and specialist officers continue to assist them." Please call WMP on 101 if you have ANY information.
