William Street

Appeal after 19-year-old died one week after Derry assault

Jordan McConomy died following an altercation with another man on Sunday morning.

POLICE IN DERRY are revisited the scene of an assault in which a 19-year-old man died one week later.

Jordan McConomy from the Rossnagalliagh area of the city, died following an altercation with another man on Sunday morning.

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward with information.

Detective Inspector Clara Heaton, from the PSNI’s Serious Crime Branch, said:

“Detectives and local officers were out in William Street in the early hours of this morning speaking to people who were socialising in the area in an attempt to jog people’s memories.

We were enquiring whether people had been in the area last week when the assault took place and if anyone had any information that could help with our investigations.

“CCTV shows that a large number of revellers were in William Street last week so we thought it was important to try and speak to those who may not have talked to police at the time or indeed in recent days.

We appreciate some people may have been in shock last week and also that recollections can be clouded by the effects of alcohol at the end of a night out. We also displayed posters of Jordan last night in an effort to further jog people’s memories.

“I would like to continue to appeal to anyone who has any information, no matter how small, to get in touch as well as any members of the public who witnessed an altercation in William Street between approximately 1:45am and a 2:15am last Sunday.

“We would particularly like to hear from motorists who were either parked on or travelling along William Street during these times and who had a dash cam fitted to their vehicle. Please contact detectives at Strand Road on telephone number 101, quoting reference number 228 of 24/9/17. Alternatively, information can also be given anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
