The devastated family of a man who was violently assaulted and left to die alone are pleading for the public to come forward with information.

Father-of-one Anthony Winter, from Pentwyn, Cardiff, was found dead in a woodland area near Brookfield Drive, St Mellons, on November 22 around 7.15am.

In a statement, his loved ones spoke of wanting justice for both the 32-year-old and his young daughter, two, who has now lost her father.

Anthony may not have been perfect but he was our kind of perfect, they said.

He was violently assaulted and left to die alone. He did not deserve to die that way.

Anthony will never have the chance to do any of those things, so if you have any information at all, no matter how insignificant you think it is, please come forward and help the police.

We need justice for his daughter so that our brother can rest in peace.

Officers are not looking for any other suspects but are still urging anyone with further information to come forward.

I would like to reassure his family and the wider public that we are committed to tracing and bringing to justice all those involved in taking this young fathers life, Detective Superintendent Richard Jones said.

Residents have said that they were left shocked by the news of Anthonys murder in the popular dog walking area.

Its a real shock, John Griffiths, 83, of nearby Trowbridge, told the BBC.

A group of us often take the dogs for a walk through those woods, its usually so peaceful.
