Police appeal for information on Swann murder
Police have renewed calls for information today as the island marks the one-year anniversary of the murder of Danshun Swann.
Mr Swann was stabbed to death on South Road, Southampton, outside the entrance to the Southampton Rangers Sports Club, just after midnight on August 27, 2018.
A police spokesman said: “The murder of Danshun Swann was senseless and a cowardly attack by unscrupulous individuals. Justice demands that those responsible are prosecuted.”
He added: “This investigation is an active investigation and detectives are renewing their appeal for witnesses to come forward.
Investigators are aware that there was a large crowd present at the time that Danshun was stabbed and many people witnessed this stabbing.
“The investigators are also aware that many of those witnesses were recording a fight that was taking place and investigators are interested in speaking with those witnesses that have footage.”
The spokesman said police were grateful for those who have already come forward with information.
“He added: “This appeal is for more to do the same.
“Investigators are aware that some witnesses are reluctant to come forward and would like to remind the public that the information that you share will be treated in the strictest of confidence. All information is important and has the potential to solve Danshun’s murder.”
Two men were arrested by police in connection with the murder of Mr Swann, but both were released on bail as the investigation continues.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Chief Inspector Arthur Glasford on 247-1739, Acting Detective Inspector Jason Smith on 717-0864 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
