West Midlands Police: Statement
We can now name the young man who died Cody Fisher. His family said tonight: “They have broken our hearts; I have lost my best friend. My family and I are asking for privacy and respectfulness at this heart-breaking time.”
We’ve launched a murder investigation after a man was stabbed to death on the dancefloor of a Birmingham nightclub. We were called to The Crane nightclub on Adderley Street in Digbeth just before 11.45 pm yesterday (26 December) to report that the 23-year-old had been stabbed.
Despite efforts to save him, he was pronounced dead around 30 minutes later. His family has been told and will be supported by specialist officers. Detectives are viewing CCTV from the nightclub and are urging anyone who was in the area at the time to get in touch. No one has been arrested at this stage.
Det Insp Michelle Thurgood, leading the investigation, said: “This was a young man enjoying himself with friends on a Boxing Day night out and our thoughts are with his friends and family today. “We know there were hundreds of people in the nightclub at the time. While we’ve spoken to a number of them already, we still need to hear from anyone who was there and who witnessed or even filmed what happened. “We believe that the victim was approached by a group of people, and was then stabbed, so we’re working hard to identify all of those involved.” The scene remains closed today while officers gather evidence, and neighborhood officers will be patrolling the area over the coming days to offer reassurance.
Anyone with information has been asked to get in touch via Live Chat, quoting log 3792 of 26 December. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously at 0800 555 111.
Security checks during the event were criticized
Detectives are looking into the venue’s CCTV and urging anyone who was nearby to contact them. Revelers at the nightclub bemoaned security checks at the occasion and spoke of a “moody” ambiance there.
Birmingham resident Sydnee Power spoke of “groups of boys” who were “trying to cause problems.” “As soon as I and my buddies went in, we got a very weird vibe, and the environment wasn’t pleasant,” the 23-year-old stated.
There were just boy groupings everywhere, and the majority of them appeared depressed. Many of them were undoubtedly out to cause problems; they were not there to take in the music.
An unnamed 18-year-old Wolverhampton resident described the encounter as a “disaster waiting to happen.” Regarding the security checks, he said: “Although my pockets were full, no one ever requested my friend or me to empty them while we were out. I was wearing cargo pants with lots of pockets.
“While searching me, they didn’t even touch me; instead, they simply traced the contours of my body with their hands before tapping me to signal that I might go. “Naturally, you want everyone to enjoy themselves and have a nice time, but as soon as we entered, I told my companion, “That’s the worst search I’ve ever seen.” Anything might have been brought in by anyone.”
The Crane expressed its sorrow and sadness over the death of a man yesterday night as their Boxing Day event came to an end in a message on Instagram. The club’s New Year’s Eve celebration has been canceled, it was added.
Police said neighborhood officers will be patrolling the area over the next several days to provide assurance. The scene will stay closed while evidence is obtained, they added.
