A MAN who died in hospital after being found with stab wounds near Epping's brothers were rapper Morrisson and the ex-boyfriend of former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger.

Stephen Morrisson, 30, (pictured above) was found injured on Epping Road, Epping, near the Wake Arms roundabout at about 8pm on Tuesday.

It reportedly followed a chase between two cars in the area, according to a witness quoted in The Sun.

His identity has yet to be confirmed by police, but tributes have been paid on social media.

Officers and paramedics treated him for a suspected stab wound at the scene and he was taken to hospital, where he later died.

He was the twin brother of rapper Jon Morrisson, known as Morrisson on the grime music scene.

His other brother was Joey Morrisson, 34, who dated ex The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) star Lauren Goodger, 33, while he served a 16-year prison term for possession of a firearm, kidnapping, blackmail and actual bodily harm.

Goodger also featured in one of Morrison's videos, which was filmed in her flat, in 2017.

A moving tribute was posted by Morrisson on his Instagram page today, saying: "Rest in peace my brother my friend my twin Stevo I'm gonna miss you bro.

"No words can explain this pain. I'm thankful for everything you done for me and our family.

"We ain't no angels but you didn't deserve to go out like that and I'm thankful I got to bump into you on Father's Day and cuddle you and tell you I love you and say good bye."

Stephen Morrisson was jailed in July 2012 for two years and ten months for his involvement in a raid on a £2.5 million cannabis factory in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex, in which a Vietnamese illegal immigrant, who had been tending the crop, died.
