MYSTERY still surrounds a Herefordshire murder, six years on.

30-year-old Christian Bagley was stabbed in the arm and back as he walked under Hunderton Bridge, close to the Great Western Way, after visiting his daughter on Father’s Day in 2015.

He was thought to have walked up Villa Street toward Hunderton bridge at about 10.40pm on June 21 before being stabbed in the back and an arm on the pathway under the bridge.

The first 999 calls came in at 10.50pm and reported Mr Bagley as being in Charles Witts Avenue, Hunderton.

He reached adjacent Rogers Avenue before collapsing.

He died at Hereford County Hospital.

Several people were arrested in connection with the case, but no-one has ever been charged.

Speaking on the two-year anniversary of Mr Bagley's death, in 2017, his brother Wayne Wood said he did not hold out much that the killer would be identified.

He said police “should have listened to the family more” instead of, as he describes it, relying on a computer system to lead their investigation.

“They wasted a lot of time,” he added.

At the time, Detective Chief Inspector Leighton Harding, from West Mercia Police, said a number of lines of enquiry had been carried out during the investigation into Christian’s death, including speaking to witnesses who may have seen Christian before he died on June 21, 2015.

DCI Harding said: “This was a callous and brutal murder of a young father and Christian’s mother, daughter and wider family have been left completely devastated.

“This is made even more difficult in that the person or people responsible have yet to be caught.

“I am convinced that someone knows who is responsible for killing Christian and I am appealing to them to do the right thing and come forward and assist us with our investigation.”
