Whilst I was away on holiday there was a murder in Winchester. Stuart Horsman became ill at Winchester station on 3 August and died of internal bleeding in hospital, later that day. It's believed he had been assaulted some time earlier and 2 men have been arrested adn bailed on suspected murder.

I do recognise the chap who was murdered as he was regularly around the train station area and in and around Winchester, I think that he may have been homeless and understand from the press that his brother had previously died due to drugs.

Fortunately this kind of crime in Winchester is relatively rare.


  1. Welcome home. Sorry you came home to news of this murder.

  2. It is so sad. He was an easy target for thugs.

  3. Sad that this happens, but nice to hear somewhere this is uncommon.
