Grimsby: update in investigation into death of man

30 Jan 2018

Our investigation into the suspected murder of Waltham man James ‘Eddie’ Fish is continuing today.

Mr Fish died yesterday morning (Monday, January 29) following an incident at an address in Grimsby Road, Waltham.

A 28-year-old woman, who was known to him, was arrested in connection with the incident and remains in our custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Stewart Miller, the Senior Investigating Officer, said: “While we are still working to establish the circumstances of Mr Fish’s death, we believe that this was very much an isolated incident, with no risk to the wider public.

“Our investigation is continuing today and we are very grateful to everyone who has provided us with information about yesterday’s events. We would particularly like to speak to anyone who was in Waltham – in the area of Grimsby Road, Manor Drive, High Street and Fairway between 8.00am and 11.30am on Monday, January 29 - and saw a person wearing an olive green jacket, green or grey beanie hat and a grey rucksack.

“There are still a number of officers in the area, both as part of the investigation team and to provide reassurance to the community.

“We also have specialist officers in place to support Mr Fish’s family through this very difficult time and we would like to take this opportunity to offer them our condolences.”

If you believe you can help, please call us on 101, quoting log 107 29/01/18 or speak to the investigation team on 01482 630699.
