Details of Incident

Police investigating the murder of Billy Henham in Brighton at the beginning of the year have released images of the clothing he was last seen wearing.

The body of 24-year-old Billy from Henfield was discovered at a disused building in North Street, Brighton, on Thursday 2 January after officers attended the property following a report of concerns for a person.

Detectives have arrested four men, a teenage boy and a woman on suspicion of murder and they have been released under investigation. One of the men ages 19 and the 24-year-old woman have since been released from the investigation with no further action.

Detective Superintendent Alex Geldart, Senior Investigating Officer said: "Billy tragically died of his injuries following as assault and we are still keen to hear from anyone who was in the building in North Street or knows of anyone who was there from 9pm on New Year's Eve (31 December) until 5.30pm on Thursday 2 January."

"We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who recognises this clothing which Billy, who had distinctive red hair, was last seen wearing, a beige designer jumper, green bomber style jacket and reddish brown suede trainers."

"Our thoughts are with this young man's family who say that he was an independent and creative person who had a wonderful gentle demeanour. They fear his friendly manner and open outlook made him, at times, somewhat vulnerable."

"We are continuing to investigate and are determined to get justice for Billy's family and friends."
