A year after a man was murdered in Croydon, police are issuing a fresh appeal for information.

Danny Gough was previously a convicted drug dealer before being released from prison. On December 14 last year, police were called to reports of the man stabbed at his girlfriend’s home in Stockbury Road. Gough is said to have died of a haemorrhage from multliple wounds after three men broke into the house and stabbed him.

Since the brutal incident, police have arrested five men and one woman, who are currently on bail.

Police are now renewing their appeal for witnesses or anyone with additional information about the murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Amanda Hargreaves, from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command, said: “It has been a year since Danny’s death and his family deserve to see his killers brought to justice.

“I would like to hear from anyone who has any information that could help our investigation. I would appeal for any witnesses or anyone who has yet to come forward to do so, and help us catch Danny’s killers.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4155 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
