A MAN who could hold vital information in a murder probe is being urged to come forward.
Fresh images have been released of a man in Wrexham’s Cambrian Vaults pub on the night father-of-three Craig Maddocks died at the premises.
Police are looking to trace the man as a potential witness to the events of the early hours of June 26, when Mr Maddocks, 34, of Llay, died.
The man, who police stress is not a suspect, is the only person who has not been traced from CCTV footage inside the pub.
He was in the pub around the relevant time and police believe he may have information that would assist their investigation.
Following Mr Maddocks’ death, Francisco John Prevete, 45, has been charged with murder.
DC Andy Crawford said: “We’re keen to trace this man who is not a suspect but who may hold vital information.
“I would urge the man himself to come forward or anyone with knowledge of his identity to contact North Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
Mr Maddocks was a keen boxer and football fan.
His funeral service was held at The Church of St Martin of Tours in Llay.
Hundreds turned out to pay their last respects to Mr Maddocks in a celebration of his life.
Mr Maddocks left several close family members, including children Chloe, Lois and Miles, parents Edna and David, sister Lisa and brother Daniel.
l A man charged with murder following an alleged attack at a pub in Wrexham will be asked to plead next week.
Francisco John Prevete of Weale Court, Wrexham, will attend a plea and case management hearing on October 2.
A ‘mention’ hearing in his absence was conducted by Judge Niclas Parry at Mold Crown Court yesterday.
He made various orders about the serving of evidence and adjourned the case, remanding him in custody in his absence.
Prevete, 45, is charged with the murder of Craig Harold Maddocks.
Henry Hills, defending, has previously told the court that the allegation was strenuously denied and the charge would be vigorously defended.
