POLICE is looking for the man in connection with the murder of a 24-year-old in the city center – the crime still unsolved almost 18 months later.
Billy Henham’s body was discovered in a disused building in North Street, Brighton on January 2, 2020.
A murder investigation has been opened with his family who emotionally pleaded for justice earlier this year.
The detectives are now asking for help in finding Dushane Meikle.
Have you seen Dushane Meikle?
An image has been posted of the 27-year-old, who is from Hove and has ties to Brighton and London.
Members of the public were urged not to approach him, but rather to contact the police.
Detective Superintendent Alex Geldart said, “We urge anyone who sees Dushane Meikle or has information on his whereabouts to dial 999 immediately.
“Please stay away from him.”
Police opened a murder investigation and closed the area for several days following the incident.
In January, Billy’s heartbroken family pleaded for witnesses to come forward, a year after his death.

DS Geldart had previously stated that Billy had “tragically died” as a result of an assault.
The investigation has already seen detectives arrest four men, a teenager and a woman on suspicion of murder.
All six were subsequently released as investigations continue.
Officers said they were not taking any further action against one of the 19-year-old men and the 24-year-old woman.
Anyone with information that could aid the investigation is encouraged to report it online or call 101 citing Operation Gatling.
