Second arrest in Cleethorpes murder probe

Forensic investigation is still ongoing at the scene

A 44-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of Shaun Lyall after his body was discovered at a property in Cleethorpes this week.

As previously reported, Humberside Police launched a murder investigation after officers were called to Sidney Street at 6.45pm on Tuesday, July 17.

Police teams arrested the 44-year-old man at an address in Rutland Street in Grimsby during the evening of Thursday, July 19 as part of the ongoing investigation.

A 33-year-old woman was previously arrested in connection with the death, who was questioned by detectives investigating the incident.

A scene guard is in place at the scene and will remain there until all of the forensic investigations have been completed, which may be several days.

Senior Investigating Officer Stewart Miller said: “We have had a number of calls providing key information about Shaun’s death, he was clearly a well-liked man and people are coming forward with lots of information.

“I would ask for anyone who has not already contacted us to call us as a matter of urgency, you may have important information that could help us find out what happened to Shaun.

“I want to thank the local community, not only for their patience in what is a very upsetting incident, but for their support in coming forward to give us information and help. Having such an intensive police presence in their community is disruptive to them and we are trying to keep disruption to a minimum.

“Residents will see an increased police presence in the area in the coming days to not only carry out our investigations but to provide reassurance to them.

“I am aware of the significant speculation and rumour on social media about the nature of Shaun’s injuries. These rumours are unhelpful and in our view are inaccurate.”

Anyone with information should contact Humberside Police’s investigation team on 01482 630699 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
