A fresh witness appeal has been launched to help find the killer of Carlo Giannini, 34, following the discovery of new CCTV evidence.

Mr Giannini’s body was found in Manor Fields Park six months ago at 5am on Thursday May 12.

A post-mortem later concluded that he had died of a stab wound.

The new CCTV evidence found by South Yorkshire Police has led officers to believe he entered the park at 1:18 am that morning.

His movements after this are unknown.

Senior Investigating Officer DCI Becky Hodgman said: “It’s essential we build up a clear picture of the activity in and around the park in the early hours of May 12.

“We are looking to speak to those pictured as potential witnesses to the most serious of crimes. If you recognise yourself or someone you know in the images, please get in touch as soon as possible.”

So far, two people have been arrested in connection with Mr Giannini’s death, both on suspicion of murder.

A 17-year-old boy will face no further action, and an 18-year-old man remains on bail.

Last Saturday, Mr Giannini’s family made a passionate plea from their home in Italy.

They asked for anybody who knows anything to come forward and help officers with their investigation.

They said: “Carlo has a family whose heart has been broken and left with a piece of them missing. Carlo was a man full of life and with a lot of passion for his work.

“He loved his family, he loved life, he loved his friends. He believed and trusted people who showed him love and wanted to change his life with his work.

“Carlo deserves to rest in peace and, along with justice, this is the minimum we can give to him after his life was taken from him. Because no-one has the right to kill.

“If anyone saw something on the night between 11 and 12 May 2022 please go to the police. It might help give Carlo some dignity.”
