Re-appeal for information to coincide with 21st birthday of Nyle Corrigan

Detectives are today, Tuesday 26 April, re-appealing for information to coincide with what would have been the 21st birthday of Nyle Corrigan.

The 19-year-old died from a single gunshot wound to the back after being shot in Boode Croft in Stockbridge Village at around 6.30pm on Thursday 12 November 2020.

A murder investigation has been underway since his death and a number of lines of enquiry have been undertaken.

To date, 11 people have been arrested in connection with his death but nobody has been charged.

Detective Chief Inspector Cath Cummings, who is leading the murder investigation, said, “It is 17 months since the death of Nyle following a shooting in Stockbridge Village.

“Nyle’s family will commemorate his 21st birthday today but do so without him and without seeing the person or people responsible for his death behind bars where they rightly belong.

“Although we have made considerable progress with the investigation since that time, and arrested 11 people, we still need people to come forward with information if they haven’t already done so.

“Information and CCTV could be crucial and I would appeal directly to anyone who was driving in the area at the time and has any information to contact us.

“There is no place in Merseyside for firearms, and anyone who stores them or uses them to cause fear, injury or worse are simply not welcome here. 

“I would urge anyone who saw anything or who has any information which could help us with our enquiries to contact us urgently. You may not think that the information you have is significant but it could help us with our enquiries.”

Anyone who has any information which could help detectives with their inquiries can contact the Facebook ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ quoting the reference number 2000068886.

Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111 or via their online form at: https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information/give-information
