Following the dreadful fatality in Walsall Wood High Street in the early hours of Saturday, 24th November 2018, police have issued a further statement, naming the young man who lost his life.
My condolences to Carl’s family and friends at this awful time.
Please can people commenting on social media in response to this awful event note that the family have asked that their privacy be respected, and as a community I think that’s the very least we can do.
I would continue to ask that anyone with information – no matter how small or insignificant it may seem – to come forward and talk to police.
