Police name killer who died in crash near Trowbridge
8:22am Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Trowbridge
The man accused of murdering a car wash owner before being killed in a crash near Trowbridge has been named.
Valerijs Grigorjevs, 27, was killed when a Toyota he was driving ploughed into the front of a lorry and was dragged for 80 yards along the road at West Ashton on October 11.
Hours later police trying to trace the owner of the car found Ibrahim Youseuf, 42, dead at a flat in Gloucester Road in Boscombe, Bournemouth.
Dorset Police said forensic evidence linked his death to the crash on the A350 in which Mr Grigorjevs died.
Detectives said the men, both from Bournemouth, knew each other.
A post-mortem examination showed Mr Youseuf, who owned the Five Star Car Wash in Gloucester Road, Bournemouth, died from stab wounds and head injuries.
Police said the men had argued in the flat on Thursday evening and at some point Mr Grigorjevs attacked Mr Youseuf.
Detectives say that during the assault Mr Grigorjevs killed Mr Youseuf and they are not looking fior anyone in connection with the murder.
An inquest into Mr Grigorjevs' death has been opened and adjourned.
It was told that he died from multiple injuries he suffered in the collision with a lorry on October 11.
