Police Investigating Motörhead-Related Murder
Posted by Chris Harris on November 27, 2010 in NewsLemmy had nothing to do wit it, folks. So get that thought straight out of your head. But yes, police in the United Kingdom are investigating a murder that happened after a Motörhead gig at the 02 Academy.
According to the BBC, Andrew Crawford, 44, of Pudsey, was attacked on Dudley Way near The Light shopping centre on Thursday evening and died later at the hospital. Crawford was at the Motörhead concert; during the show, one of his friends’ hair was set on fire.
Police claim the incident at the Motörhead gig and the murder may be linked. West Yorkshire Police said Crawford was hit on the head several times, and died from serious head injuries.
“This is an extremely serious incident and officers are following a number of positive inquiries to trace the people responsible, says police spokesman Paul Taylor. “These inquiries include a thorough examination of Leedswatch and other CCTV cameras in the O2 Academy, along with working with the club’s security staff. I am convinced that members of the public will have vital information which can assist our enquiries. I would encourage anyone in the Dudley Way, St Anne’s Road or Cookridge Street areas at the time of the incident who saw the altercation or people running from the scene to contact us.”
