Main article content
Detectives are today (Friday 18 June 2021) continuing to appeal for information following the assault and subsequent death of Terence Dunn in Norris Green in 2019. Terence - known as Terry - died aged 49 from injuries sustained in an attack on 18 June 2019, two years ago today.
Terry was seriously assaulted by a man, believed to be carrying a golf club on Wapshare Road, Norris Green at about 3.40pm that day.
The suspect was challenged by a member of the public and then ran off down a cut-through onto Kilrea Close, possibly making off down the loop line. He is described as white, 5ft 7in, in his 20s and wearing dark clothing with a hood up.
On 24 September 2019, emergency services were called to a home following the sudden death of Terry.
Following enquiries, three men aged 27, 28 and 46 were arrested on suspicion of murder and a 54-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder. They all remain under investigation. An investigation into Mr Dunn’s death remains ongoing.
Detective Chief Inspector Siobhan Gainer said: “We share the determination of Terry’s family in finding answers to who was responsible for his death. Two years on from the attack will be an especially difficult day, although we know the pain of losing him has stayed with them every day since.
“Terry was a well-known and liked member of the Norris Green community, but for some reason he was specifically targeted. We suspect the offender may have had a grudge against him and was trying to send a strong message by attacking him, although this tragically led to his death some months later. If you have heard anything locally about this and not come forward, we need to hear from you – any information, however small it may seem, could prove crucial for our enquiries.
"We are also continuing our search for another man, believed to be in his 70s, who we think may live locally and would have passed the man carrying a golf club (as seen below on CCTV) on the day of the assault.
“Could this have been you or do you know who it is? It is crucial if you know who this witness is, or if this was you, that you speak to us. Even if you do not remember the incident, but you are the person pictured, please come forward so we can continue piecing together what happened.
“We are determined to find the person responsible for Mr Dunn’s death and put them before the courts. His family deserve to know who is responsible for his death and we are committed to seeking justice for them.”
