TWO more people have been arrested as police continue to investigate the murder of a Basingstoke father.

Frazer Brabant was attacked in Gershwin Road, Brighton Hill, on October 31, 2019.

A 23-year-old man from Basingstoke, who had previously been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, has been re-arrested on suspicion of murder today (June 1).

Additionally, a 21-year-old woman from Basingstoke has also been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Both remain in police custody at this time.

It comes after police arrested another man last week. A 26-year-old man from Basingstoke was arrested on May 26 on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

Several people have been arrested since the attack on Brabant. Five people were arrested in October 2020, six people were arrested back in June 2020, a further five people were arrested in November 19, 2019, and a 22-year-old man was arrested in December 2020.

All have since been released under investigation.

Frazer Brabant was assaulted on Halloween 2019, and died in January 2020 as a result of his injuries.

The attack reportedly involved a hammer.

He was found with serious head injuries in the rear garden of a house in Gershwin Road, and never left hospital before passing away on January 21, 2020.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Constabulary said last week that the force was "committed" to finding Brabant's killer.

They said: "This remains an active investigation, and Hampshire Constabulary remain committed to bringing those responsible for Frazer’s death to justice, no matter how long it takes.

"We continue to encourage anyone with information to phone 101 quoting Operation Enhance. It is not too late to come forward with any information that could assist us with our investigation."

A cash reward was issued by the charity Crimestoppers last year, which offered £10,000 for information that led to the arrest of Brabant's killers.
