Detectives investigating the death of a man at Horsley station in Surrey are today launching a fresh witness appeal following an number of extensive enquiries. 

The witness appeal focusses on the Frensham Great Pond area near Farnham, between 5.45pm and 6.35pm on Friday 4 January. 

Senior Investigating Officer Sam Blackburn from BTP, said: “Since Friday afternoon, a dedicated team of detectives have worked diligently in piecing together the events before and after the killing. 

“Our enquiries have led us to believe the suspects briefly stopped at Frensham Great Pond car park, on Bacon Lane after 5.30pm on Friday afternoon. We are therefore looking to speak with anyone who was at the site and saw a man and a woman acting in an unusual or out of character manner. They would have been travelling with a young child at this point and we understand they would have arrived and departed in a blue Vauxhall Corsa.

“If you were at the Frensham Great Pond car park during this time, please do get in touch as you might hold information which could help us uncover any new evidence.” 

A post mortem examination has also taken place since the weekend, this has revealed that Mr Lee Pomeroy died as a result of multiple stab wounds, which included an injury to his neck. Further searches in the Clandon area of Surrey have also been conducted and detectives have also executed a warrant to search a property in the Bognor Regis area of West Sussex. 

DCI Blackburn, added: “Our family liaison officers are providing Mr Pomeroy’s family with support as they continue to come to terms with Friday’s devastating news. The family have asked for privacy as they grieve the loss of Lee.”
