Detectives investigating a murder in Kettering have released CCTV footage of a man they believe may be able to provide vital information.

29-year-old Tairu Jallow was attacked at about 9pm on Sunday, 14 January, at his home in Havelock Street.

He died as a result of a stab wound.

Detective Inspector Phil Mills, from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU) Major Crime team, believes there are a number of people with information that would assist the inquiry, including the man pictured, and he is urging them to get in touch with police.

He said: “We are now a week on from this tragic incident in Kettering and I know there are people out there who may have seen or heard something, either on the night or since, and who can help us understand exactly what happened in Havelock Street last Sunday night, and how Tairu lost his life.

“We know a group of men broke into the property at about 9pm. They then attacked Tairu, who died as a result of a stab wound.
