Police investigating dad-to-be’s death want to speak to this man

Detectives investigating the death of a father-to-be in Oldham last month have released an image of a man they wish to speak.

Charlie Elms, 25, died on Wednesday, May 26, after police had been called at around 5.05pm to a report of men causing damage to a property on Fifth Avenue, according to Greater Manchester Police.

The force says Mr Elms, whose partner was expecting their first child, was ‘fatally injured’ and pronounced dead at the scene.

Seven people have been charged in relation to the incident, including a 17-year-old who is charged with murder.

Today, June 14, investigators from GMP’s Major Incident Team have released the image of a man they believe could have information about a ‘disturbance moments before the incident’.
