Renewed witness appeal on anniversary of Joshua Green murder

Joshua Green who died on New Year's Day 2012Detectives investigating the murder of 27-year-old Joshua Green are making a fresh appeal for information on the anniversary of his death.

Joshua, from Manor Park, Sheffield, was stabbed to death in the early hours of New Year’s Day 2012 after a confrontation in the Stars Suite on Queens Road. He sustained a fatal stab wound to the neck on the dance floor and died at the scene. The murder weapon has not been recovered.

Nobody has been charged with Joshua’s murder despite lengthy police enquiries. Four men aged between 18 and 22-years-old were arrested within three weeks of his death. Two were charged with other offences on the night of the incident while the other two men were released due to insufficient evidence.

Joshua’s mother Sarah Thompson and his girlfriend Aisha McNellie conducted an emotional appeal outside the Stars and Mayfair Function Suites in July 2012, accompanied by Joshua’s young daughter Jadore Green.

Detective Superintendent Terry Mann, the senior investigating officer in the case, said: “Despite a significant media appeal in the summer and the investigation team speaking to over 400 people who were at the club the night Joshua died, we’ve still not received that vital piece of information to bring his killers to justice.

“Someone knows who did this. There are still people who attended the club who have chosen to stay silent or have refused to help. Joshua’s family and friends had their lives devastated last New Year, don’t let them suffer even more than they already have.”

Anyone with information that could assist the murder investigation is urged to contact South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 516 of 1.1.12.

Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. You could receive a cash reward of up to £1,000 if the information you give leads to one or more people being arrested and charged.
