Just before midnight on Boxing Day, Cody Fisher, a 23-year-old non-league football player and coach of school teams, was attacked at The Crane nightclub.
The nightclub’s license has been requested to be examined, according to West Midlands Police, who also reported finding a knife. Police reported that the murder suspect, 22, was being detained in London at around 3:00 GMT.
On suspicion of helping a criminal, four further persons have been detained in the capital.
A post-mortem examination revealed that Mr. Fisher, had been stabbed to death. The fatal stabbing occurred at the club in the city’s Digbeth neighborhood just before 23:45.
Following their Wednesday arrests, detectives are still questioning two guys, age 21 and 22, on the basis of their possible involvement in his killing.
Police think that before being attacked, Mr. Fisher was contacted by a group. The police said licensing officers will call for “immediate measures” to be implemented in relation to the club during a Birmingham City Council hearing scheduled for Friday at 10:00.
The force said in its appeal that the “serious management failings of the premises in concern” and the severity of the crime were the reasons it was requesting the review.
With seven persons in prison, Det Ch Insp Ian Ingram of the West Midlands Police stated that the agency was still “building a picture of events” that had led to the murder.
He declared, “e ware determined to get answers and justice for Cody’s friends and family, and won’t stop until that happens.”
“We are keeping them updated with developments as they happen and continue to support them through this awful time.”
He continued by saying that more people were coming forward with information, but he renewed his call for anyone else at the club that night to contact authorities.
I’d urge people to do the right thing and talk to us right now if you have footage that we have not yet seen or you know what may have occurred in the days leading up to Boxing Day’s tragic events.
On social media, there have been tributes to the player, including one from Jess Chatwin, who started writing: “My baby’s smile how can you take him away. It was meant to be us forever. I’m so sorry my baby you didn’t deserve this.”
The “bright, friendly, and talented young man’s” “tragic and needless” death has left everyone at Woodrow First School, where Mr. Fisher taught and coached students, inconsolable.
On Wednesday, before the youth team’s practice, Walsall Football Club, where Mr. Fisher had previously played, observed a moment of silence.
According to Bromsgrove Sporting chairman Mike Burke, memorials will be conducted before the team’s game against Stratford on January 2.
