A poignant new picture has been shared of a dad-of-two as a Crimestoppers charity £10,000 reward for information relating to his alleged murder is renewed.
Hemwand Ali Hussain, 30, was found dead at a property in Charterhouse Street, Hartlepool, on Sunday September 15 2019. The latest picture shared by his family is of him smiling as he sits in his car.
Crimestoppers – the independent charity that gives people the power to speak up anonymously and stop crime – has renewed its £10,000 reward to anyone who contacts them with information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for the alleged murder of Hemwand Ali Hussain.
Cleveland Police have shared images of Qazim Marku, 23, and Eugert Merizaj, 28, two men who are wanted in connection with the father-of-two’s alleged murder.
Both men were born in Albania but are thought to have links to a number of areas across the UK including Cleveland, Bolton, Sheffield and London.
Eugert Merizaj is described as around 5’5 tall with brown eyes and short dark hair with a receding hairline. He has a full beard and moustache in images which have been released by police.
Qazim Marku is around 5’8 tall, again with brown eyes and short dark hair. He also has dark facial hair in a photograph shared by police.
Four men have already been charged in connection with the alleged murder of Mr Hussain, who had suffered a gunshot wound. Their trial date is yet to be confirmed.
Detective Chief Inspector Sarah Robinson, said: “Mr Hussain was found dead in a property in Charterhouse Street, Hartlepool and had suffered a gunshot wound.
“He was a father-of-two who had served in the Kurdish military.
“We’d appeal to anyone who can provide information to help us locate these wanted men to get in contact with police, and if anyone sees these men, they are asked not to approach them but to contact us on 999.”
DCI Robinson added: “We also continue to search for two further men, of unknown identity, who we believe can help us with our enquiries. They are a man believed to be in his 40s – who was a passenger in a silver Mercedes E Class – and a man, thought to be in his 20s, who is pictured wearing a grey ‘Fila’ brand sweatshirt and dark trousers.
“We want to re-appeal to anyone who believes they have information which could help our investigation to get in touch.”
