Greater Manchester Police have released the images of Shaquille Daniel, who is also known as Shaquille Lawson, in the hope that it will jog people’s memories.

At 3.10pm on Saturday 4 October 2014, police were called following reports a body could be seen in the Huddersfield Narrow Canal near to the Tesco on Trinity Street, Stalybridge.

Officers attended and 17-year-old was pulled out. He was taken to hospital where he was in a critical condition but sadly died on Sunday morning.

Shaquille is described as being of mixed race, was wearing a dark grey gilet with a blue hood, dark grey hooded top, burgundy polo shirt, grey jogging bottoms and black trainers.

Detective Chief Inspector John Mazzolai said: “We have released a picture of Shaquille in hope it will jog people’s memories.

“He was seen outside Coral bookmakers on Grosvenor Street at 2.50pm before this image was taken outside the entrance to Tesco at 3.05pm. Three minutes later, we received a 999 call to say he was in the canal.

“We do not believe Shaquille has been a victim of an assault or a third party has been involved but we are still treating his death as unexplained.

“If you believe you saw him between these two times, please call us as we are still trying to find out the circumstances that led to him being in the canal.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 9333 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
