Kevin Lavelle Murder

February 9, 2012 by staff 

Kevin Lavelle Murder, Relatives of a man killed in Oxfordshire in an attack nearly seven years ago are travelling to south Wales in a new move to find his killer.

Kevin Lavelle, 29, of Bootle, Merseyside, was beaten with an iron bar in a gang attack outside the Cricketer’s pub, Banbury, in June 2004.

Support group Families Fighting For Justice said Mr Lavelle’s family would be handing out leaflets in Pontypridd.

Police believe there were people from the area in the pub at the time.

Jean Taylor, founder of Families Fighting For Justice, who will be going with Mr Lavelle’s father Paddy and sister Lesley, said: “It’s bad enough when you see the sentencing that happens in this country, but when you see this, with people having no justice, you feel you have to try to do something.

“We have over 1,000 flyers which we will be giving out.”

A trial at Oxford Crown Court in 2006 of a man accused of murdering Mr Lavelle collapsed when a judge said it was impossible to determine who struck the killer blow.
