WELLINGTON CITY

Wellington Police investigating the murder of 43 year old Phillip Cottrell are looking for further assistance from the public.

Mr Cottrell died as a result of fatal injuries sustained in an assault in Boulcott Street around 530am on Saturday 10 December 2011. Two people have been charged with murder in connection to the investigation this week.

Officer in charge of the investigation Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Miller says officers have reviewed further CCTV footage over the past few days and would like to identify and locate the people in the attached images.

"These people and this vehicle were in Boulcott Street at around the time Mr Cottrell was attacked. We would really like to speak with these people to ascertain if they saw or heard anything at that time."

D/S/S Miller says it's vital that investigators can account for all movements on Boulcott Street between 5:20am and 5:45am on Saturday 10 December.

"Whilst arrests have been made in connection to Mr Cottrell's death, this investigation is far from over and we need assistance from the public to help us piece the jigsaw together."

D/S/S Miller says Police are still getting a good response from the public with a steady number of calls. A number of these people have been extremely helpful to the enquiry.

Anyone with any information should phone the Operation Dean investigation team on (04) 381 1027 or phone Crimestoppers on 0800 282828.
