Man Hunt Continues for Wanted Man over Southampton murder


Police continue to search for man wanted in connection with Southampton murder

Detectives are continuing to appeal to the public to help trace a 23-year-old man from London in connection with the murder of Michael Freshwater.

Michael’s body was found at an address on Westridge Road at 4.15pm on Friday, April 29.

Officers need to trace Kevin Suika.

Kevin is 23-years-old and is described as black, 5 feet 7 inches tall, is of proportionate build with a distinct tattoo on his left arm that reads ‘Work like a slave, eat like a king.’

Suika has links to Southampton, Holloway in North London, Bromley and Kent.

Detective Superintendent Becky Riggs said: “I would appeal Suika to hand himself in at a local police station or make contact with us as soon as possible to assist us with this investigation.

“Come forward and tell us what you know. This remains an active murder investigation and we won’t stop until we get justice for Michael and his family.”

“Anyone we find to have been harbouring or assisting Pope or Suika to avoid arrest should be aware they are committing an offence themselves and may find themselves liable to arrest or a term of imprisonment.”

“I want to appeal directly to the public and ask, if you know where Suika is, please contact Hampshire Constabulary in confidence on 101 quoting Operation Windless.”

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and leave information anonymously, or report online.
