Cleethorpes

Murder investigation suspect caught on camera

The suspect in a murder investigation was captured on CCTV on the day that a body was found in Cleethorpes.

Humberside Police released two photos of 28-year-old Abdi Ali, who the force say is a “significant suspect” for their investigation.

The images were taken from CCTV footage in Grimsby on the day that the victim’s body was found.

As previously reported, the body of Shaun Lyall was discovered at a property on Sidney Street on Tuesday, July 17.

Detective Inspector Rebecca Dickinson is leading the investigation and said: “We are appealing to and working with the drugs communities in Grimsby and Sheffield where Abdi Ali has strong links.

“We are also doing the same in the Somalian community in Sheffield, and in the Tower Hamlets area of London where he has family connections.

“He is a habitual drug user and we are looking at needle exchanges, drop-in centres, drug support units as well as hospitals to see if he attends any.”

The force are considering the possibility that someone may be hiding Abdi Ali and do not believe that he has left the country.

Abdi Ali’s appearance could have changed since the last appeal. He could have removed his distinctive gold tooth and grown a beard.

Humberside Police are warning the public to not approach the suspect and to call them immediately.
