Detectives investigating the murder of a Saudi Arabian student in Essex have released an e-fit image of a man they would like to speak to.
Nahid Almanea, 31, was found with sixteen knife wounds on the Salary Brook Trail in Colchester, Essex, at around 10.40am on 17 June.
Police said the man pictured in the e-fit was seen running up Hewes Close, away from the Salary Brook Trail at 10.56am.
He is described as white, aged between 18 and 25, with dark red hair and was wearing a long-sleeve plain hooded top that is described as "London bus red" and dark trousers. The force said he had a piercing in his left eyebrow.
