Hampshire Constabulary – New Milton witness appeal

Hampshire Constabulary are appealing for any witnesses, or anyone with information, following the sudden death of a man in his 40's from New Milton

Details of Incident

Officers involved in the investigation are releasing a CCTV image of 43-year-old Christopher Homer who sadly died in hospital on Friday 3 September.

We are trying to establish the exact circumstances surrounding Christopher’s death and whether any offences were committed.

He was seen at around 2pm on Thursday 26 August buying goods from the Premier Store on Station Road in New Milton with no injuries as shown in the CCTV image. Christopher was then seen at 10.30am the following day (27 August) at Santander bank on Station Road in New Milton and later the same day again at the Premier Store at around 2pm with a number of facial injuries. We are trying to establish how he was injured and whether this is linked to his subsequent death.

If you have private CCTV footage or dashcam footage that could help us to establish Christopher’s movements, or how he came to be injured, it can be uploaded online via the below link
