Appeal for information relating to the Murder of a 30 year old male in Epping on 23rd June 2020.

Essex Police Detectives are continuing to investigate after a 30 year old man was found in Epping with a fatal injury.

A murder investigation was launched on Tuesday 23 June, after officers responded to reports that a man had been found seriously injured on Epping Road, shortly before 8pm.

The man was taken to hospital, but despite the efforts of medical staff, sadly the man died.

Initial enquiries indicated that the man had been assaulted outside Essex and the investigation was progressed by detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service. 

Further investigation established that it was likely the man was attacked in a car park between the Robin Hood roundabout and the Wakes Arms roundabout on Epping New Road, in Epping.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Julie Gowen, who is leading on the investigation said: "First and foremost my condolences go to the victim's family and friends, at what is a very sad and difficult time for them.

"We have been working with our colleagues in the Metropolitan Police Service to establish what happened to the victim that evening.

"We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area between 3pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday 23 June and saw or heard any suspicious or unusual behaviour.

"We are particularly interested in anyone who was driving in the area and has dashcam footage.

“It doesn’t matter how small or insignificant you think your information is, it could be vital to our investigation."
