Kenneth Beagle was shot in the head in a hospital car park.
He had been paying for a parking ticket in the car park of the Oldchurch Hospital in Romford when he was shot in the head.
Two men were seen running away from the car park.
Kenneth Beagle was said to have been a drugs dealer and it was later said that he had been shot over a failed drug importation.
The investigation into his murder was later said to have been compromised by corruption in the Metropolitan Police Force when a corrupt policeman contacted a close friend on the murder investigation team. It was said that an alleged organised crime boss was then informed that the investigation team considered him a suspect.
The book Untouchables, states that Kenneth Beagle was also known as Kenneth Kenny and that he was behind a 155kg parcel of cannabis that five men were arrested with in June 1996 in a SERCS operation codenamed Bank. He was said to have been in prison at the time of the arrests. The book also states that he was a police informer.
