Mr Appicella’s body was found inside a property on Craganour Place in Denaby Main at around 9.45am on Sunday morning (15 December) after officers responded to calls of concerns for his welfare.

It is believed that Mr Appicella had been involved in an altercation with a group of people on Tuesday 3 December in an alleyway leading to Hickleton Street in Denaby Main prior to his death.

Enquiries suggest he then walked to his home address where his body was found last weekend.
