Today is the one year anniversary of the murder of Danshun Swann, and the police continue their investigation, with detectives renewing their appeal for witnesses to come forward.

A police spokesperson said, “The 27th of August is the one year anniversary of the murder of Mr. Danshun Swann.

“Danshun was stabbed to death on South Road Southampton, just outside of the entrance to the Southampton Rangers Sports Club shortly after midnight Monday 27th August 2018.

“This investigation is an active investigation and detectives are renewing their appeal for witnesses to come forward.

“Investigators are aware that there was a large crowd present at the time that Danshun was stabbed and many people witnessed this stabbing.

“The investigators are also aware that many of those witnesses were recording a fight that was taking place and investigators are interested in speaking with those witnesses that have footage.

“Investigators would like to publicly thank those witnesses that have come forward to date and provided information. However, this appeal is for more to do the same.

“Investigators are aware that some witnesses are reluctant to come forward and would like to remind the public that the information that you share will be treated in the strictest of confidence. All information is important and has the potential to solve Danshun’s murder.

“To date two men have been arrested in connection with Danshun’s murder and both have been released from police bail pending further investigations.

“The murder of Danshun Swann was senseless and a cowardly attack by unscrupulous individuals. Justice demands that those responsible are prosecuted.
