Murder police seek key witness

MISSING witnesses could hold the key to the police investigation into a murder of a man in Fishponds and a second ‘linked’ attack.

Ronald Leigh, aged 21, was stabbed in Gill Avenue and died of his injuries in hospital.

Hours later a 48-year-old man was attacked in nearby Downend Road, suffering life-threatening injuries.

Detectives say the murder of Mr Leigh “led directly” to the second incident – but believe witnesses with information "crucial" to solving the case have yet to come forward.
