New £10k reward to find two outstanding people and a car connected to the murder of Tomasz Waga in Cardiff
Main article content
The charity Crimestoppers have launched a new appeal for anonymous information to urgently find a car and two men linked to the murder of Tomasz Waga in Cardiff.
The reward of up to £10,000 will be available to anyone providing information exclusively to Crimestoppers leading to the recovery of a Mercedes, and the arrests of Artan Pallucci, 29, last known address Cathays, Cardiff, and Elidon Elezi, 22, last known address East Finchley, London.
23-year-old Tomasz’ body was found by a member of the public in Westville Road, Penylan, late on Thursday, 28 January, 2021.
He had been assaulted and died from his injuries that day. It is believed that he travelled from Dagenham, east London to Newport Road, Cardiff.
Four men have already been charged in connection with Tomasz’ death and a number of vehicles have been seized as part of the investigation.
But a silver/grey Mercedes C200 Sport, registration BK09 RBX is yet to be found.
It was last seen in Cardiff on the day Tomasz’s body was found. Information is sought on its movements since Thursday, 28 January, 2021, and its current location.
A previous registered owner of the vehicle lives in the Fairwater area of Cardiff and is in no way connected to this investigation.
Mick Duthie, Director of Operations at the charity Crimestoppers, said: “We are appealing to anyone with information about these wanted individuals and the silver Mercedes C200 vehicle to come forward and speak to our charity 100% anonymously as soon as possible. We would like to see justice for Tomasz’ loved ones.
“It is important to be clear that to assist anybody wanted for questioning over a crime can lead to prosecution. Our charity is here for people who feel unable to speak to police directly. We are independent from the police and offer an alternative option when reporting crime. Since 1988, when Crimestoppers began, we have always kept our promise of anonymity to the millions who have trusted us with their crime information.
“We know that the Mercedes was captured on CCTV in the Cathays area of Cardiff on 28 January. It is possible that the car has been sold, has a different number plate or is burnt out somewhere. Somebody knows what has happened to it. We urge anybody with information to do the right thing and contact us. You can call our UK Contact Centre, which is open 24/7, on freephone 0800 555 111 or you can use our simple and secure anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. Nobody will know you got in touch with us and you’ll be doing the right thing.”
***Information passed directly to police will not qualify for a reward. Only information passed to Crimestoppers using the untraceable anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org or via freephone number 0800 555 111 will qualify***
