POLICE have issued a picture of a man they wish to trace in connection with a murder in the West Midlands.

Simon Medley, 26, died after being stabbed and was found in Prince Street, Walsall, on May 12, last year.

Officers would like to speak to Jonathon Everton Bailey, who also goes by the street name Famous, who they believe may be able to assist with the inquiry into Mr Medley's death.

Mr Bailey is thought to have come to the West Midlands from the London area, but police now think he could be elsewhere in the UK, possibly the North-East.

Anyone who recognises the man, or who knows of his whereabouts, is asked to contact the police in confidence at the murder incident room in Walsall, on (01922) 439107.

Alternatively, people can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
