EXCLUSIVE: 4 men, 2 women and boy, 17, still in frame for Epping Forest murder of Stephen Morrisson


SEVEN people remain suspects in the investigation into the murder of Stephen Morrisson who was fatally stabbed in an Epping Forest car park in June.

Last week Essex News and Investigations revealed that two men arrested over the murder in June would face no further action.

One of them, a 31-year-old from London, was released under investigation in relation to two drug offences, which he was also arrested on suspicion of.

However, there are six people still in the frame who will answer bail on dates from this month to December and a seventh, a 26-year-old man from London, who was released under investigation.

The six are a 20-year-old man from Berkshire and five people from London, including two women, both 23, two men aged, both 24, and a boy, 17.

Stephen, 30, (pictured above) from Plaistow in East London's brother is rapper Jon Morrisson - aka "Morrisson".

His other brother is Joey Morrisson, who once dated ex-TOWIE star Lauren Goodger.

He died on Tuesday, June 23, after he was stabbed in a car park between the Robin Hood and Wakes Arms roundabouts on Epping New Road. He was found badly injured at the service station near the Wake Arms.

A memorial set up there by friends and family (pictured top) has since been weather damaged. Stephen was taken to hospital but, sadly, later died. A forensic post-mortem examination found that he had suffered a stab wound.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Julie Gowen, who is leading the investigation, said: "I would like to thank everyone who has got in contact with us so far. Your help has been invaluable.

"Nine people have now been arrested in connection with Stephen's death, but we are still asking anyone who has information to come forward and speak to us. "No matter how small or insignificant you think your information is, please get in contact with us. "It could be the key to bringing those responsible for Stephen's death to justice."
