Despite the recent arrests, the investigation is developing and we are still keen to speak to anyone who may be able to assist in the enquiry.  I would appeal to anybody who may have heard an altercation in the Bethel Place area of Connahs Quay to come forward.  Also, if you saw anyone running from the area at around 8pm on Monday 29th May, please speak to us.

An increase in uniformed presence will remain in the area as we continue our enquires.  I am conscious of the disruption caused to members of the local community, and whilst I am empathetic to this, I would ask that you please bear with us.

A post-mortem on the body of the dead 19-year-old male is expected to take place today.

Police were called to an address at Bethel Place, Connahs Quay shortly before 8pm on Monday May 29 following reports of a serious incident.

Despite the efforts of paramedics and police officers the man, not from the local area, was pronounced dead at the scene.
