Paul 'Irish' Crosbie charged with murder of Emille Stapleton in St Albans

A LONDON man who was re-arrested in Hertfordshire on Monday after a police appeal has been charged with murder.

Paul 'Irish' Crosbie, 26, was wanted by police in connection with the stabbing and murder of Emille ‘Millz’ Stapleton in St Albans, Hertfordshire, on October 24.

The Camden native had been arrested by police in the immediate aftermath of Mr Stapleton’s death but was bailed pending further inquiries.

But Hertfordshire Constabulary police officers re-arrested the suspect on Monday evening following a tip-off from a member of the public.

Mr Crosbie, known by the nickname ‘Irish’, was one of a group of people involved in an altercation on London Road, St Albans on October 24.

The fight resulted in the death of 20-year-old Mr Stapleton, with Mr Crosbie being one of 11 suspects arrested.

But after releasing all 11 pending further inquiries, Herts police issued an appeal to locate Mr Crosbie when they acted on fresh evidence.

“A man has today (November 3) been charged with the murder of Emille ‘Millz’ Stapleton in St Albans,” a Herts police spokesperson told The Irish Post.

“Paul Crosbie, who is 26 years old and of no fixed address in Camden, will appear before Hatfield Remand Court tomorrow (November 4).”

The 10 others who were released on bail after their arrest remain on police bail.
