A 32-year-old man killed in a “horrific” attack in an Ipswich street died of a single stab wound, a post mortem examination has revealed.
Daniel Saunders died following the incident on Sunday, December 16, which is thought to have happened in an alleyway behind houses in Turin Street, near to Wherstead Road.
The attack, believed by police to be targeted, was reported just before 2pm on Sunday, and sparked a huge emergency response.
Despite the best efforts of paramedics, police officers and an air ambulance crew, Mr Saunders, originally from Surrey, died at the scene.
A short while later, at around 4.30pm, detectives launched a murder investigation.
A Home Office post-mortem examination has now concluded that the cause of death was as a result of a single stab wound to the abdomen.
Three people – two men, aged 44 and 39, and a woman aged 31 – were arrested on suspicion of murder on Sunday and taken into police custody for questioning.
