We are today, Tuesday 13th April, appealing for information on the 12 month anniversary of the murder of 18 year-old Kyle Whitley.
Kyle was fatally stabbed in Vincent Road, Litherland on the afternoon of April 13th 2020. He was taken to hospital by ambulance but sadly died.
Three people remain under investigation in connection with Kyle’s murder.
Detectives are continuing to appeal for anyone who has information which could assist with the investigation to get in touch.
To assist any potential witnesses we are today releasing a video walk-through of the routes it is believed was taken by those involved in Kyle’s murder.
One of the videos show the route it is believed was taken by one of the offenders (RH36) from Church Road to flats on Vincent Road, Litherland, prior to Kyle being stabbed and the route (RH37) taken by the same offender leaving the scene along Vincent Road towards Daley Road.
The second video (RH39a and RH39b) shows a route through gardens along the rear of Moss Lane which is believed was taken by a second person leading onto Moss Lane and towards Church Road, following the stabbing.
Detective Inspector Barbara Hebden said: “Today marks exactly a year since Kyle was fatally stabbed in Litherland.
"He was a young man with his whole life ahead of him. He was applying for jobs, going to the gym, getting into fitness and trying to be the best person he could be before his life was tragically cut short.
