walking west up Brassie Avenue on the evening Daniel was killed.
"There is nothing to suggest these men are linked to the murder of Daniel
but they may have vital evidence that can ensure that those responsible are
held accountable for their actions. It is possible that they have not even
realised how vital they are to the investigation.

these men been watching a match together before walking home? Do they live
locally or are they walking back to a car? Had they got off a train at Acton
