Murder Investigation Launched Following Death of Lincoln Man

Police in Lincon have initiated a murder investigation following the death of a 46-year-old man in Lincoln. The Lincolnshire Police Force Control Room received a call from the hospital at 6.12pm on Friday, June 14, reporting that a man had been admitted with severe injuries to his body and head. Despite medical efforts, he succumbed to his injuries at 17:10 BST today, Sunday, June 16. His next of kin have been notified and are receiving support from specially trained officers.

Police are conducting extensive inquiries in the city centre, focusing on Frank Swaby Court, off Newark Road, where the assault is believed to have occurred between noon and 4 PM on Friday. Authorities are seeking public assistance to piece together the events leading up to the incident.

Detective Inspector Andy McWatt, who is leading the investigation, expressed the urgency and gravity of the situation. “We know how concerning and frightening it will be for people to hear about this investigation, and we are making it a priority to find out what happened. We need all the help we can get from the public, and we’re asking you to come forward with anything at all you think might help. We would rather you come to us with information you are unsure of than risk not mentioning it, no matter how small you think it might be. The smallest piece of information can make a big difference in an investigation, as we’d rather have information and not need it, than miss a key detail.”

Since Friday, four individuals have been arrested in connection with the case: three men, aged 31, 32, and 33, and a 28-year-old woman. Two additional suspects, a 36-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman, were arrested today. All suspects remain in police custody for questioning. Authorities believe that the suspects and the victim were known to each other.

Police are urging anyone who was in the Frank Swaby Court area during the specified time or who has relevant dash cam or mobile phone footage to come forward. Information can be provided by calling 101 and quoting incident 348 of June 14, by emailing [email protected] with the same incident number in the subject line, or anonymously via CrimeStoppers at 0800 555 111 or online.
