Phillip Floyd was found on Forest Road and with serious facial injuries and died a short time later in hospital

Police have launched a murder investigation nearly three months after a man was found fatally injured in a Moseley street.

Phillip Floyd, 50, was found on Forest Road on January 28 and was rushed to hospital with serious facial injuries where he died a short time later.

Initial investigations looked at the possibility that he may have been the victim of a hit-and-run. 

But following a further post-mortem examination, it was concluded that he died after suffering a severe blow to the head and a murder investigation has now been launched.

Detective Sergeant Neil Aston, from the force CID, said: "We are now pretty certain that Phillip was not hit by a car but received a blow to the head and was left in the road.

"We are now treating this as a murder and we are renewing our appeal for information.

"We have previously released CCTV footage showing two cars driving down the street and a man running along Forrest Road. We would still like to appeal for the drivers and the running man to contact us.

"The family of Phillip have been made aware of the new developments in the case and specialist officers continue to assist them."

Anyone with information is urged to call the Major Investigation Review Team on 101.

Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555 111.
