THE FAMILY of a man killed 10 years ago has this morning made an emotional appeal for information.
Father-of-two Kevin Lavelle, 29, died after he was struck across the head with a dumb-bell in a fight at the Cricketer’s Arms pub in Banbury in June 2004.
Murder detective Pete Beirne today told a press conference there were 10 people at the pub at the time of the fight and at least one of them knows who killed Mr Lavelle.
Listen to today's press conference. The first voice is principal investigator Pete Beirne, of the major crime review team. The second voice is Steve Duffy, who lead the case for nearly 10 years before retiring in February, before you hear Kevin's family: Mother Joan, dad Patrick, sister Lesley, wife Michelle, and mother-in-law Linda Thomas.
The victim’s mother, Joan Lavelle, wept at the briefing as she said: “How can they live with this?
“We feel they are laughing at us. They know who has done this.”
Anyone with information should call Mr Beirne on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
