Detectives have appealed for information about distinctive jewellery which is thought to have been stolen from a Coventry murder victim.

Officers believe a gold necklace and a bracelet taken from George Devonish may help them to hunt down the 30-year-old's killer.

Mr Devonish was found dead at an address in the Alderman's Green area of Coventry on December 4, having suffered head and neck injuries.

Detective Chief Inspector Steve Bimson said officers were particularly keen to speak to anyone who has knowledge of the jewellery, which may have been taken to a shop to be sold.

Meanwhile, police released a poem written by one of the victim's three children, Kaine. The poem read: "Dear God up above, please find my dad and give him a hug. No farewells were spoken, no chance to say goodbye.

"One little heart was broken without a reason why. Dad I love you so much and I know you love me too.

"You are forever in my thoughts and in my heart too."
