Alert message sent 11/07/2016 17:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit is making a fresh appeal for witnesses in connection with a murder investigation launched on Wednesday (6/7).
We continue to investigate the circumstances around an incident that we believe occurred on 21 June in Harefields, Oxford, where the victim, Jack Phipps, is believed to have been injured. He was admitted to hospital on 22 June and sadly died on Friday (1/7).
Work is still ongoing to establish the exact cause of Mr Phipps’ death following a post-mortem.
Senior investigating officer, Chief Inspector Ailsa Kent of the Major Crime Unit said: “We continue to investigate this incident; we would like to speak to anyone who may have seen Mr Phipps between the dates of 1 June and the incident in Harefields, Oxford on 21 June.
“We are led to believe that Mr Phipps regularly frequented Cutteslowe Park so we wish to speak to anyone who may have seen him in the area, particular between the dates I have already mentioned.
“We would also like anyone who has any further information who we have not already spoken to, to come forward”.
“We are releasing an image of Mr Phipps in the hope that it might jog people’s memory of seeing him.”
If you have any information about the incident please call the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting reference 487 6/7/2016
