Last CCTV moments of stab victim Kevin Lomas three years after unsolved murder

Detectives probing the unsolved murder of a Birmingham man have issued CCTV footage of his last movements. Kevin Lomas, described by loved ones as ’embodying everything in life that was bright’, died from a stab wound three years ago.

The 56-year-old was found dead in his bedroom at his home in Stratford Road, Hall Green, on April 2, 2021. A man in his 40s and a woman in her 30s were previously arrested on suspicion of murder and released on bail.



West Midlands Police released never-before-seen footage from a residential street in Hall Green in the hope it may jog memories and encourage anyone with information to come forward. His family said of Kevin: “Three years have passed and it’s been a struggle losing you in such terrible circumstances.

“You’re the missing link in our family. Considering you were quite shy when you were young you embodied everything in life that was bright. If anyone felt low, Kevin would lift you. If you needed help Kev would give you a helping hand. He just wanted everyone to be happy and enjoy life as he wanted to do so himself. Tragically this was taken from him. Our poor brother.”

Det Chf Insp Laura Harrison, who is leading the investigation, said: “Three years have now passed and sadly we have not been able to get Kevin’s family the answers they deserve. We’ve carried out lots of enquiries in the area, including CCTV, witness and forensic work, but sadly we’ve not been able to gather enough evidence to charge anyone with Kevin’s murder.

“Now that some time has lapsed, I’m hoping there are people who know who is responsible for this and they realise now is the time to do the right thing and come forward.” Anyone with information should call police on 101 or contact Live Chat on the police’s website, quoting 20BE/98674C/21.
