Reward to identify potential suspect seen on CCTV after Leicester man murdered

A £20,000 reward is being offered by Crimestoppers to help identify a man seen riding a bike on CCTV who is wanted in connection with a Leicester murder.

Up to £20,000 is available from the charity for information given anonymously to them which can help identify this person.

The man was in the vicinity when 50-year-old Junior Osborne was stabbed along Narborough Road on Wednesday, 27 September at around 9.45pm.

Mr Osborne was taken to hospital where he died from his injuries.

Lydia Patsalides, East Midlands Regional Manager at the charity Crimestoppers, said: “Junior Osborne is described by his loved ones as a ‘beloved brother, dad and husband’. Crimestoppers knows how hard it is for people to speak up when they know something about crime, especially if it’s about serious crime such as this murder. 

Every day, our charity helps people overcome barriers that might otherwise keep them silent. We are not the police and you will stay completely anonymous when you contact us. If you recognise this person in the CCTV footage, you could make a huge difference by telling our charity.
