Today, marks the second anniversary of the murder of Danshun Swan, who was stabbed to death shortly after midnight on Monday 27th August 2018.  

Danshun had attended a party at the Southampton Rangers Club and was stabbed when he attempted to break up a fight that had taken place outside the club premises on South Road.

There was a large crowd that witnessed the fight and many witnessed the fatal stabbing.

The investigation into Dashun’s murder, is at a critical stage and there is the potential of it being solved and those responsible being brought to justice and providing closure to his family and loved ones, who continue to grieve the loss of their son, brother and friend.

The 27th of August, is also Danshun’s sister’s birth date. As you might expect, she finds it difficult to celebrate what for her should be a joyous occasion, but for the death of her beloved brother.
