EXCLUSIVE: Two arrested over murder of Stephen Morrisson in Epping Forest face no further action


TWO men arrested in connection with the murder of Stephen Morrisson who was fatally stabbed in an Epping Forest car park in June have been released with no further action.

A 31-year-old man from London arrested on June 30 on suspicion of murder answered bail this week, but was told he will face no further action in respect of the murder.

An Essex Police spokeswoman said: "He has been released under investigation in relation to two drug offences, which he was also arrested on suspicion of."

Another man, 35, from London, who was arrested on July 3 on suspicion of Stephen's murder also answered bail this week to be told he will also face no further action.

Two others were rebailed. A 23-year-old woman from London and a third man from London, 24, who were both arrested on July 3 on suspicion of the murder were re-bailed until November 24. Five other people arrested in July are awaiting outcomes.

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.
