Detectives investigating the murder of Tomasz Waga in Cardiff, have released a photograph of a car they urgently need to find.

 

Tomasz's body was discovered by a member of the public at approximately 11.30pm on Thursday, January 28 in Westville Road, Penylan. He had been the victim of a sustained assault.

The Mercedes, which has links to the three wanted men, was seen in Cardiff on the day of the murder but has not been seen since. It could contain vital evidence and help lead officers to the outstanding suspects.

The men have links with Lushnje in Albania, Yorkshire, specifically Bradford and Huddersfield, north west London and Bristol. They are thought to have fled Cardiff on Friday January 29.

 

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Mark O'Shea, from South Wales Police, said: "We are extremely keen to hear from anyone who has any knowledge of this silver Mercedes C200 seen here on CCTV in the Cathays area of Cardiff.

 

"We would like to know where it has been since January 28 and where it is now. It may have been sold, cloned on different number plates, stored, or even burnt out somewhere.

"Anyone with information is urged to please contact South Wales Police or Crimestoppers anonymously.

"Tomasz was a much-loved son, brother, father and partner to his girlfriend, and his family continue to be updated and supported by family liaison officers."

 

A previous registered owner of the vehicle lives in the Fairwater area of Cardiff and is in no way connected to this investigation.
