Murder probe over Birmingham gym owner death
A gym owner has died 12 days after apparently falling two storeys from a walkway leading to his Birmingham gym.
Police said they were now treating the death of the 38-year-old man, who has not been named, as murder.
He was found on 9 July with serious head and spinal injuries beneath the walkway leading to the Dark Arts Gym in Northfield and died on Saturday night.
A 48-year-old Northfield man appeared in court last week charged with wounding and was remanded in custody.
Another man, aged 21, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder on 10 July and was bailed pending further inquiries.'Good Samaritans' appeal
The victim was tended to by passers-by after being found under the walkway leading to the gym in Bristol Road, before being taken to hospital.
After his death, detectives renewed their appeal for witnesses to come forward with information and contact either West Midlands Police or Crimestoppers.
Det Con Paul Read said: "Almost two weeks on from the incident and we continue to work hard to establish what happened in the moments leading up to the fall that has ultimately resulted in this man's death.
"If we and his family are to understand what happened that night, we need those good Samaritans who fought to save his life to contact us."
