A man who died having suffered stab wounds in Derby on Sunday has been named as Corey Duffy.
Our officers are continuing to investigate Corey’s death, which is being treated as murder, and are still appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
Emergency services were called to Bass Street just after 3.45pm on Sunday 11 June, where Corey sadly died despite attempts to save him.
Windmill Hill Lane remains closed between Cross Street and Bass Street, and Bass Street remains closed between Windmill Hill Lane and Peel Street.
Formal identification has now taken place and Corey’s family are aware. They are being supported by Family Liaison Officers and our thoughts are with them.
The 30-year-old’s family have asked for the media to respect their privacy at this time.
Detective Inspector Maria Pleace, Senior Investigating Officer, said: “We have a team of officers who are continuing to work hard to investigate the circumstances of Corey’s death and we are following a number of lines of enquiry.
“We would still like to hear from anyone who hasn’t yet come forward and may have information which could help the investigation; it doesn’t matter how small you think that information is, it could provide the missing piece.”
DI Pleace added: “Police officers remain in the area, and patrols are being carried out for community reassurance and I would encourage anyone with any concerns to speak to local officers.”
