Tattoo John

THE death of a man in Grays is no longer being treated as suspicious.

John Hicks, 56, from Grays sadly died in hospital on July 4 of this year, having been found with a head injury on London Road the previous day.

A 19-year-old man and a 47-year old woman were arrested on suspicion of murder, but will face no further action in relation to these charges following a post-mortem examination and detailed forensic testing.

The 19-year-old also received a warning notice for the possession of cannabis.

An investigation is ongoing into an alleged assault on Mr Hicks prior to his death.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 101 quoting crime reference number 42/91275/18.
