Police offer £20,000 reward in Kelvin Easton murder

APPEAL: Kelvin Easton was fatally stabbed at the Boheme nightclub on March 27

POLICE ARE offering a £20,000 reward for information leading identification and prosecution of the person responsible for the murder of a 23-year-old man stabbed to death in an east London nightclub.

Kelvin Easton died from a single stab wound to the heart at the Boheme nightclub, Mile End on March 27.

Eyewitnesses say that an argument broke out between two men before a few punches were exchanged. The victim was then stabbed in front of terrified ravers just before 4.30am.

They watched as the 23-year-old rapper, who performed under the name Smegz,tried to run away but instead stumbled down the stairs and collapsed.

London Ambulance Service attended and tried to perform CPR but the young man, from Broadwater Farm, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have arrested and bailed 11 men aged between 24 and 32 year-old in connection with the incident. All suspects are expected to return to a north London police station in November.

The family of Kelvin, who was also close friends with police shooting victim, Mark Duggan, are pleading with the public to come forward with information on the six-month anniversary of his death.

Kelvin's aunt Janice Ferguson and his stepmother Ray Carroll said: "It's been six months since Kelvin's death and we are asking anyone with information to come forward".

There were so many people at the Boheme nightclub on 27 March 2011 when it happened. What would you do if it happened to someone in your family? You would want people to come forward."

"It takes a strong person to come out and say something. You are not grassing on someone, you are helping a family who have lost a loved one. You don't even have to make yourself known, you can give information
anonymously," they added.

Detective Inspector Robert Pack said: "We have yet to trace everyone who attended the club that night and are still appealing for people to come forward, even if you don't think you have any useful information. There were
about 500 people in the venue at the time."

"We will treat all information in the strictest confidence. If you can concerned about coming forward please at least contact us and let us discuss how we can help."

Any witnesses or anyone with information should call the incident room on 020 8345 3865 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
