Are you in this CCTV? Help us catch a killer

SOMEONE in this CCTV footage taken from the St Leonards Tavern could help solve a 15-year old murder mystery.

Moments after this vision was captured, 28-year old David Breckenridge was brutally stabbed and bashed to death.

His killer is still on the loose.

The last minutes of David Breckenridge's life was captured by CCTV at St Leonards Tavern on August 10, 2002.

At 11.45pm, CCTV shows David entering the pub and chatting with the licensee Grant Baker.

David waits at the bar for a few minutes as Grant goes out the back to grab a cold, six-pack of VB to give to David as a birthday gift - he had turned 28-years old the day before his murder.

David was killed almost 16 years ago. His killer has never been found.

The five-part series reveals, at one level, the seemingly normal life of a young man with the world before him tragically cut short in a few short minutes of almost inconceivable violence.

It also uncovered a world of drinking and recreational drug use, one-night stands and a love triangle suggested revenge as the killer's motive, which was ultimately ruled out.

The Daily Telegraph can also reveal startling new evidence that raises questions about the police's handling of the case.
