Detective Chief Inspector Cameron Miller, of the Major Investigation Team, said: "Our enquiries have so far established that Mr Shaw was murdered between 7.25pm on Wednesday and 5.55pm on Thursday.

"We believe he may have been deceased for several hours before his body was discovered.

"He sustained a brutal attack and we are determined to trace whoever is responsible and bring them to justice.

"Mr Shaw was well known locally and I believe there are people in the community who know who is responsible for his murder.

“On Wednesday afternoon, officers carried out a stop and speak operation to prompt the memories of members of the public who may have been in the same area last week.  

"This was a worthwhile exercise and I have been encouraged by the response from the public. Around 60 people were spoken to and we are currently assessing the information they provided.

"Everyone was very co-operative and understood the importance of this operation and I would like to thank them for their assistance.

"We are continuing to carry out door-to-door enquiries and review CCTV footage from in and around the area. I am appealing to anyone who was in the Jedworth Road area between 7.25pm on Wednesday, April 21, and 5.55pm on Thursday, April 22, to come forward.

"In particular, I am urging anyone who visited the building where Mr Shaw lived between these times to contact us if you have not already spoken to officers.

"We are reviewing CCTV footage of those coming and going from the building and would encourage anyone who visited during those times to make themselves known so that they can be eliminated from enquiries.

"Please do not assume that we know the information you may hold. Any piece of information you have - no matter how small or insignificant you think it is - could be vital to our investigation and may help us complete the bigger picture. 

"I can assure you that any information you provide will be treated with the utmost confidence.
