Murder victim Jason Paul
A £20,000 reward is being offered for information which can solve the murder of a teenager who was killed nine years ago.
Jason Paul was stabbed to death outside flats in Convent Way, Southall, at approximately 2pm on October 2, 2000. No weapon was ever recovered and Mr Paul, who was was 18, had a three-month old daughter at the time of his death.
Following extensive enquiries it is known that between six and eight Asian men, aged 20 to 25, were seen in Convent Way at around 1.30pm on the day of the murder.
Today, officers will be in the area around Convent Way handing out leaflets and speaking to people to gain information or to trace any further witnesses.
DCI Lee Presland of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command said: “Nine years have passed since Jason was murdered and his family is still desperate to know who killed him and see justice done.
"It may be that the circumstances of someone who was present at the murder, or knows who was involved, have changed over the last nine years and they may now feel that they can come forward.
“If you have any information about what happened that day I would urge you to speak to us in the strictest of confidence.”
Anyone with information is asked to ring the Incident Room on 020 8358 0400 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Seven men arrested in connection with the investigation between October and November 2000 were subsequently released. No further action was taken.
