Family pay tribute to man found dead on Sandwell industrial estate

A man found dead at an industrial estate in Sandwell earlier this week has been named as Carl Woodall.

Carl, aged 44, was found at around 4.50pm last Monday at a unit in Doulton Road, Rowley Regis. His family have paid the following tribute:

“Life as we knew it changed when Carl was senselessly killed. The loss is hard to bear and we continue to work to come to terms with him being lost to us in such an unforgivable manner.

“He leaves behind five children who now face a future without a loving father. Quiet and unassuming by nature this is a tremendous loss to us and the friends around him.”

A post mortem examination was carried out which showed Carl died from multiple injuries. Detective Hannah Whitehouse, from the force homicide team said:

“My thoughts remain with Carl’s family. His death is tragic and unnecessary. We’re doing all we can to find out what happened, why and who was responsible.

“I’d encourage anyone with any information which may assist our investigation to get in touch as soon as possible. Carl’s family are understandably distraught by what has happened – please help us help them get the answers they need.”

Police can be contacted via live chat on the West Midlands Police website, or by calling 101, quoting log number 3064 of 28 June.
