Continued appeal following assault and death of man in Norris Green

On Tuesday, 18 June, Merseyside Police detectives renewed an appeal for information following the assault and subsequent death of Terence Dunn in Norris Green five years ago.

Terence – known as Terry – died aged 49 on 24 September 2019 from injuries sustained in an attack on 18 June 2019.

Terry was seriously assaulted by a man, believed to be carrying a golf club, on Wapshare Road, Norris Green at about 3.40pm that day.

The suspect was challenged by a member of the public and then ran off down a cut-through onto Kilrea Close, possibly making off down the loop line. He is described as white, 5ft 7in, in his 20s and wearing dark clothing with a hood up.

Four people have been arrested in connection with Terry’s death but to date, nobody has been charged.

Kevin Clague, Head of Merseyside Police’s Serious Crime Review Unit, said, “It’s now five years since Terry was fatally assaulted and I have no doubt that his family are devastated they have still not got the answers they deserve.

“Terry was a well-known and liked member of the Norris Green community, but for some reason he was specifically targeted and subjected to a brutal assault.  He never recovered from his injuries and died just a few months later.

“We remain determined to find the person responsible for Terry’s death and getting justice for Terry’s death and I would urge anyone living in or around the Norris Green community who has information which could assist our investigation to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook Merseyside Police CC.
