Family release emotional appeal video following Brixham murder

Daughter and wife of David Williams urges witnesses to speak up

Police have released a video on behalf of the family of murdered David Williams, urging those involved and witnesses to come forward.

Detectives continue to conduct enquiries into the death of Mr David Williams, aged 49 from Brixham, who died after he received a serious injury following an incident on the Quay in Brixham in the early hours of Friday 29 June 2018.

The daughter Katy and Polly, the wife of David urge those responsible and those who witnessed the incident to come forward.

“Our dad was taken from us in a most brutal and horrific way that no one should ever have to experience. It has left us all truly devastated and broken.

“It is desperately unfair and Dad won’t ever be there growing old and sharing in all our lives and special moments.

“We are unable to come to terms with the fact that this occurred in the small fishing town Brixham – our home where we have grown up and lived, feeling safe and secure in a close community.

“It is unbearable to know that the people responsible for the death of our dad are still freely walking our streets, knowing they have done this or witnessed it.

“I appeal to you all on behalf of my family to look into your hearts and conscience and morally do the right thing; to come forward with absolutely any information you may have from the night – if you were involved, witnessed the attack or later confided in.

“Please, please do whatever you can to help us. We desperately want to get answers and justice, not just for us, but for the community of Brixham too.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident and anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101@dc.police.uk or call 101 quoting CR/057720/18.

You can also give information anonymously through Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.

Five men from Brixham aged 21, 23, 27, 28 and 30 were previously arrested, all have since been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

A 53-year-old man from Portsmouth also attended a voluntary interview under caution, in relation to this matter.
