The independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers is urging members of the public to give information on the whereabouts of a man who is wanted by Hertfordshire Constabulary in connection with the death of a young man from the county [July 2013].

34-year-old Alexi Shyti, who also uses a false Greek identity of Georgios Tsoulos, had been living in Hertford but also had connections to other parts of Hertfordshire, North London and Loughborough in Leicestershire. Originally from Albania, Police believe he is currently living in the Ngracan Fier region of Albania.

The incident which Hertfordshire Constabulary want to speak with Alexi about happened on 4 June 2010 on the A10 southbound carriageway exit slip road at Hoddesdon where 20-year-old Ricky Burlton was tragically killed in a road traffic collision. Since that time police and Ricky’s family have made numerous appeals for information about the whereabouts of a man driving a white Rover involved in the incident.

Most Wanted

The appeal for Alexi Shyti currently features on the Most Wanted section of the Crimestoppers website.  Most Wanted allows members of the public to view individuals sought by Police in their local area and give information to the independent charity Crimestoppers  anonymously if they feel unable to go to the Police. 

Ann Scott, Crimestoppers Eastern Regional Manager said: “If you have any information on Alexi, no matter how insignificant you feel it may be, you can give information to Crimestoppers 100% anonymously either online by using our Anonymous Online Form or by calling 0800 555 111. In the 25 years that the charity has been running no caller has ever been identified so we can guarantee that no one will know that you contacted us with information.  We never ask for your name or take personal details, we do not trace calls/computers, we do not record our calls and callers do not have to go to court or give a statement to the Police.  It really is a quick and safe way to give information”.  

1,000 people contact Crimestoppers every day

Sue Thompson, Chair of the Hertfordshire Crimestoppers volunteer committee, added: “If people have information about Alexi then they should contact Hertfordshire Constabulary on their incident room number of 01707 355 666 or if they want to remain anonymous they should contact Crimestoppers. People are reminded that anyone who may be helping Alexi to avoid arrest is committing an offence.”  

Crimestoppers plays an invaluable part in fighting crime. Around 1,000 people contact Crimestoppers every day and 20 people are arrested every day as a result of information given to Crimestoppers across the UK.
