A 19-year-old man was charged with his murder but the case was later dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service in January 2019.

A black Volkswagen Golf car had been used in the murder and it was later found burnt out in Park View Gardens nearby.

It was said that he had seen the three men in Lord Gardens, near Clayhall Park at around 3.46am on Saturday 13 October 2018.

The police said, 'The man who walked past the three men in Lord Gardens may not have realised the significance of what he saw and I would urge him to come forward and contact police'.
