POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland have returned to the scene of a murder which took place in Armagh last month in a bid to gather more information about what happened.

46-year-old David Neill was stabbed at his home in the Craigavon area on the night of the 16 September.

The PSNI received a call at around 12.40am to say that a man had been stabbed at the front door of a house in the Parkmore area after an altercation. He was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Detectives revisited the scene in the early hours of this morning and called on people in the area to come forward with information. Police held vehicle checkpoints and spoke to local people about what happened.

The officer in charge of the investigation said that the community in Craigavon had been shocked by the killing of David Neill.

“David was in his own home whenever it was attacked,” said Detective Chief Inspector Gareth Talbot. “The impact of this tragedy is not something we underestimate and I would like to reassure the community that we are doing everything in our power to find out exactly what happened at Parkmore on the night in question”.
