Reading police seek help in murder

March 10th 2011

Police in Reading, Berkshire, are seeking help from homeless people in the area in trying to solve the murder of a rough sleeper. Thirty-three-year-old Damian Whyte's body was discovered by a dog walker in Caversham on the morning of 23 February. The post mortem revealed that Whyte, also known as Tottenham Paul or James Bond, had died of multiple stab wounds.

At a police press conference, the Reading Chronicle reported that Detective Chief Inspector Stan Gilmour said: "We need people who knew Damian to come forward and fill in some of the gaps about his movements over the last few days leading up to his death."

•  Anyone with information should call police on 0845 8 505 505 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
