Operation Telly update: arrests made in connection with death of Sol Hemy
Main article content
Officers have arrested two men today (Friday 6 December) in connection with the death of 20-year-old Sol Hemy, whose body was found in the water at Riverside Park on September 5.
• A 32-year-old man from Winchester has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
• A 28-year-old man from Southampton has been re-arrested on suspicion of murder.
Both men remain in police custody at this time.
The arrest comes after we received reports of gun shots being heard in River Walk just after 1am on Thursday 5 September. Shortly after, an address on River Walk was found to be cultivating cannabis, and a vehicle left in Riverside Park was found to contain the a large amount of cannabis.
Just after 6.30am, the body of Sol Hemy was found in the water at Riverside Park. Officers investigating his death and the incident that happened on River Walk a few hours earlier, will question both men today as part of their enquiries.
Officers continue to urge anyone with information around the circumstances of Sol’s death to call 101 and quote Operation Telly.
