Terry Leeks murder: Crimestoppers £10k reward leaflets posted to residents
Main article content
Officers investigating the murder of Terry Leeks in Basildon last year have been posting leaflets with details of the Crimestoppers reward to addresses in the Northlands Park area.
Forty-six year-old Terry died after being assaulted in the park in the early hours of 11 July.
In total, 13 people have been arrested in connection with Terry’s murder.
Four of them – two boys aged 15 and 17 and two men aged 19 – released under investigation.
Nine others have been told they face no further action.
In November last year, the independent charity Crimestoppers offered a reward of up to £10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for Terry’s murder.
Over the last few days officers delivered leaflets with details of this reward to addresses in the Northlands Park area.
Detective Chief Inspector Louise Metcalfe, who’s leading the investigation, said:
“Every day that passes where Terry’s family don’t have justice for his death, it’s another day of pain for them.
“There are people out in the community who knows what happened to Terry and who was responsible.
“Nearly seven months on from his death, it’s more important than ever that those people come forward to us or the independent charity Crimestoppers and report what they know.
“No matter how small or insignificant you believe this information to be, it may be the key to providing answers and justice for Terry’s family.”
