A police portal has been set up for anyone to report information regarding the murder of Dwayne Forrester.

This comes after Crimestoppers offered a reward of up to £10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Dwayne’s death in 2018.

Officers have been out across Pitsea delivering leaflets with details of the reward in recent days.

Dwayne was just 21 when he was found stabbed in Little Garth at around 8.45pm on 7 July 2018.

Officers have taken 377 statements, seized 755 exhibits, and viewed more than 180 hours of CCTV footage.

Six people were arrested in connection with Dwayne’s murder and three men – aged 19, 23, and 24 – arrested on suspicion of murder remain released under investigation.

Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Julie Gowen, from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “The answers to Dwayne’s murder are out there and they’re in the community.

“Dwayne’s family have been left devastated by his death and it’s really important we can provide them answers about who killed him and why.

“Relationships and loyalties can change in two years and if you have information about what happened to Dwayne and haven’t come forward, now is the time. You could really make a difference.”
