Grant Byrom was 30 when he died after being stabbed in Forest Road on Boxing Day in 1998.

Detectives are calling for anyone who can help them find Michael Donnelly, who is wanted in connection with the incident and is believed to be living abroad, to contact them immediately.

Detective Inspector Anne Cameron said: “A murder case is never filed and we are still actively trying to progress this investigation.

“It has been 15 years since Grant Byrom was murdered in Colchester and his family along with the community have the right to see justice for this callous act.

“Michael Seamus Donnelly is wanted on suspicion of murder and although detectives do make regular enquiries to trace him we are advised that he no longer lives in England.”

The force has said it hopes the photograph, despite being more than 15-years-old, will jog someone’s memory of the incident.
