Reward offered for information on James Brindley murder

Crimestoppers offers reward of up to £10,000 for information on fatal stabbing.

Independent charity Crimestoppers is today offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for the murder of James Brindley in Aldridge.

Twenty-six-year-old James was walking home after a night out in Aldridge on Friday June 23rd, when shortly before midnight, he was attacked while speaking to his girlfriend on the phone and stabbed to death.

James was seen having a disagreement with two men moments before he was stabbed. Both were seen by the entrance of The Croft near to the entrance on the Little Aston Road side just before the attack. One of those men is still wanted for questioning by police.

A post mortem examination concluded that James died from a stab wound to the heart, and now the charity Crimestoppers is supporting police to try and provide answers for his family.

A reward of up to £10,000 is being offered for information given to Crimestoppers that leads to the conviction of the people responsible for James’ murder. Pauline Hadley, West Midlands Regional Manager for Crimestoppers, said: “I cannot begin to imagine what James’ girlfriend and family must be going through at the moment after such a senseless and tragic murder.

“Nobody should be allowed to get away with such a callous attack, and that is why I am appealing to local people who might have any information, to contact Crimestoppers anonymously. Never will you have to give any personal details, and I promise that once you have put the phone down or submitted your information on our website, you’re done.”

If you have any information, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their Anonymous Online Form at
