Crimestoppers Offers Reward To Trace Killer Of Birmingham Man Murdered At Home

Eighteen years after the fatal shooting of a Birmingham man killed in his home, we are offering a reward of up to £20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible. 

Mohammed Yasin was 50 years old when he died from a gunshot wound at his home in Whitehall Road, Bordesley Green. The murder occurred on Wednesday, 28 September 2005. He was found near his front door.

“Mohammed was cruelly taken away from his family in his own home. His loved ones are desperate for answers and they think about him daily. They describe him as a ‘kind and loving person’. We would like to see justice and closure for them.

“Our charity is hoping that with the passage of time, anybody who knows who was responsible for this murder will now be ready to tell us anonymously. Crimestoppers exists to give people a vital option if they prefer not to speak to the police or give any personal details. You can tell us what you know 100% anonymously and we’ll pass it on for you.

“As a charity that is independent of the police, we have always kept our promise of anonymity – we’ve supported millions of people who have trusted us with their crucial crime information since we began in the late 1980s.

“Call our UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or fill in our secure anonymous online form. No one will know you contacted us and you will be doing the right thing for Mohammed and his family.”

Alan Edwards, Crimestoppers West Midlands Regional Manager

***Our charity, which is independent of the police, is supporting this investigation by offering a reward of up to £20,000 for information we exclusively receive anonymously online or by calling 0800 555 111, which leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone linked to the murder of Mohammed Yasin. ***

Last September on the anniversary of their relative’s unsolved murder almost twenty years ago, the family of a man who was shot dead on a doorstep made a plea for “justice and closure.”

His family made an urgent appeal for anyone with new information to come forward. Police stated they were confident someone knew the whole story behind the killing of the 50-year-old man, and they claimed they were still looking for answers and justice.

Mohammed Yasin’s family said in a statement provided by West Midlands Police: “Mohammed Yasin was a kind and loving person to family and friends. He is dearly missed by us all. There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t think about him. We as a family need justice and closure.”

Detectives also reached out to any individual with information, regardless of how minor, to contact them because the investigation is still ongoing. Det Supt Shaun Edwards of the force homicide squad stated, “Our thoughts remain with Mohammed’s family who deserve justice and closure after enduring this pain 18 years on”

“In these circumstances no case is ever closed and will always look at new information that comes to light, no matter how small it is how much time has passed. Someone out there knows something. It might be small to you, but it could make the difference to our investigation and Mohammed’s family. I would encourage anyone who knows what happened that day to examine their conscience and do the right thing – call us.”
