Police launch murder investigation after man dies following New Year's Eve fight in Hythe

Daily Echo: Murder probe after man dies in New Year fight Murder probe after man dies in New Year fight

POLICE have launched a murder inquiry after a man died following a fight at a Hampshire home.

A police spokesman said officers were called to an address in Langdown Road, in Hythe, following reports of an “altercation” inside the property at around 9pm last night.

There they found a 31-year-old man who had suffered serious injuries.

He was taken to Southampton General Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 10.20pm.

Police have confirmed that a 31-year-old man is this morning in custody after he was arrested at 2.25am at an address in Totton.

He was detained on suspicion of murder and was due to be questioned by officers investigating the death this morning.

The spokesman added that although some next of kin have been informed not all the victim's family had been told.

No details were being released on the type of injuries the man suffered.

A post mortem was due to be carried out later today by a Home Office pathologist.

Hampshire police are now issuing an appeal for anyone with information surrounding the incident to contact them.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Operation Redding investigation team on 101.

Alcohol again no doubt. You should have seen General Hospital A&E last night. Nearly all alcohol related , domestic violence, street violence, accidents and still all this hysteria about drugs. Non of the attendees were
drug related unless you realise Alcohol is the worst drug of all.

Happy New Year, does this mean that the legalisation of Heroin is imminent as it is not a problem?

Heroin is a problem drug but still not as big as a problem as the drug alcohol, if there,s to be any legalisation of any drug then it should be the lest harmful of them all and that is hemp aka cannabis, hemp is a very useful plant every part of the plant can be used unlike any other plant where we only use a small part of it.

Drugs, whatever you take, are the root of a lot of evil. It starts at the lower class of drugs and can, if you are not careful, accelerate to the hard drugs. This Country is littered with casualties and ruined lives. Alcohol is just another form of dependency.

Alcohol is the worse drug than all others and yet that is legal, Drugs have been around the whole of Human history, Hemp was known about and used while the man was still living in caves and was hunter gathers and its not cause any damage that is proven only suggestions, the biggest problem there as been no real research on the effects to the body only mix research where alcohol as also been taken

Where in the article does it say alcohol was involved?

Show some respect guys, someone has lost their life and family and friends are devestated.

What a horrible time of year to lose someone. Thoughts go to all involved. 2014 will be a miserable year for many, but I wish you all the very best. xxxxx

Do you have so little humanity that you can only find enough empathy for people you know personally?

My sympathy to the family involved, as this is actually a double tragedy for them. The alleged suspect was related to the victim in what appears to be a tragic family dispute. Please don't speculate on drugs and alcohol. It is bad enough for the family as it is without people claiming to know what did or didn't happen.

It's a shame to kill your own family especially a twin but only the person that did it knows why but I personally do believe a lot of people do drink a lot in hythe as its quite a depressing place to live Iand holbury and all the other areas have become quite deprived even more so over the Years I know there is a lot of drug use also in the 80s it was rife you have a lot of anger and violence and people having to many kids to cope and they are your next generation it's only my opinion I lived there and went school in holbury for a few years and I was so miserable but maybe as I'm a born a bred townie that's why ? But do forgive me I also experienced a lot of prejudice to ethnic cultures hopefully this is different
