Fourth anniversary murder appeal – Eddie Pybis – Liverpool

Detectives investigating the murder of a 20-year-old man from Norris Green, Liverpool are appealing for anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of his killers to come forward on the fourth anniversary of his death.

Eddie Pybis was shot on 3 January 2011 when he was a front seat passenger in a silver Volvo being driven along Utting Avenue in Anfield. He died from his injuries six days later in hospital.

Officers are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have seen anything that could help them with their inquiries to come forward.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Clark, who is leading the investigation, said: “It is four years since Eddie was murdered and his family can’t rest until those responsible are brought to justice.

“On this fourth anniversary I want to take the opportunity to appeal to anyone who has any information which could help us find those responsible to come forward, the piece of information you have could prove vital for our investigation and finding those responsible for the murder.

“I am sure that some allegiances or loyalties will have changed since 2011 and I would appeal to those who know what happened to examine their consciences and do the right thing by Eddie and hia family and come forward.

“We will always respond to fresh information and remain committed to bringing the offenders to justice and in turn bring some comfort to Eddie’s family.”

Sadly, Eddie’s mum Mary, died just over two years ago so today(Saturday) his sister Kirsty has made an emotional appeal for people to come forward.

Speaking on behalf of the family (his dad Edward, sister Megan, three nephews and niece), Kirsty, said: “All mum wanted was to see Eddie’s killer brought to justice. She passsed away without seeing justice done.  As a family, we continue to grieve and  we would like both my brother and mother to be able to rest in peace, by finally bringing his killer or killers to justice”.

“If you have any information, which could help the police bring those responsible for Eddie’s murder to justice, please come forward.”

The investigation team is reappealing for information about the movements of a black BMW 7 series, registration number DX57 UHU, that they believe was used by those who shot Eddie Pybis. The car was stolen from the Knutsford area on 2 December 2010 and was spotted driving erratically in the Anfield area shortly before the incident. It was later found burned out in Bellefield Avenue, West Derby, just hours after the shooting.

Officers have also previously appealed for information about an incident that happened earlier in the day at around 1.30pm on 3 January in Larkhill Close and involved a silver Ford Focus with a registration plate NH57 HKX and a dark coloured saloon car. Detectives are keen to trace two men who were travelling in the saloon car who were involved in an altercation with the occupants of the Ford Focus.

Both cars drove off at speed along Larkhill Lane towards Townsend Lane. It is believed that Eddie was the front seat passenger in the Ford Focus at the time of the incident.

Eight men have been arrested in connection with the murder, but to date, no charges have been made.
