A post mortem was held at St George's on Sunday.

I would urge those who witnessed the incident, but who have yet to speak with officers, to please come forward and provide us with any information that you can."

An incident room is open under the Homicide and Major Crime Command as enquiries continue and officers from the South West Command Unit will continue to patrol the area and be on hand to speak with local residents as the investigation continues.
