South Wales Police are investigating a Murder after body found in lane in Glynneath - enquiries continuing

Details of Incident

South Wales Police have launched a Murder Investigation after the discovery of the body of a 73 yr old male in the Danygraig Lane area of Pontwalby Glynneath on Monday January 27th 2020.  The male has been named as David Williams and  Kyle Bowen aged 28 has been charged with the Murder of David Williams. 
Police enquiries are continuing into this matter and as part of those investigations house to house enquiries have been conducted in the area. This is being undertaken to ensure that every resident in the locality is spoken to in order to establish if they have any information, however small or apparently insignificant, that would assist the investigation. Your co-operation in this matter is much appreciated and we would request you to submit any information to assist the investigation via the below link.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Superintendent Darren George of South Wales Police Major Crime team said:

'Our thoughts remain with Mr Williams' family at this difficult time. Myself and my team would like to say thank you to the community of Glynneath and Pontwalby. There has been a very large police presence in the village for a number of days and the residents have been nothing but helpful and supportive with officers and the ongoing investigation.
Despite the fact a person has been charged with the murder of Mr Williams, I would still ask people who were in the area between 2pm and 8pm on Monday evening to contact the incident room.”

Mr Williams’ family, who are being supported by specially-trained family liaison officers, issued a statement earlier this week saying they were devastated by their loss.
It said: “David was a very loving and generous person who would go out of his way to help anyone he could. He was very well known in the dog showing community and he will be missed very much."
