Renewed Appeal Over Northolt Murder
Large reward offered for information about Ade Shode's stabbing
Officers investigating the murder of a young man in Northolt in 2011 continue to appeal for witnesses and information with a reward of up to £20,000 available.
Adeniyi Lateef Shode (known as Ade or Enda), was discovered collapsed close to the junction of Rowdell Road, Ealing Road and Kensington Road on Monday 2 May 2011 at 8.50pm..
The 21-year-old from Edgware had suffered a stab wounds. He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital, W2 and died of his injuries on the same day.
The officer leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Andy Partridge, said: "Ade Shode was a young man who was murdered in the prime of his life. Over two years on, we continue to investigate his murder and appeal for fresh information.
“We still strongly believe that Ade knew his attacker and that he was murdered due to a previous disagreement between him and the killer.
"I am appealing to anyone who has any information about this senseless killing to come forward and give information to police. It may be that as time has passed someone may now feel able to help police bring the person/s responsible to justice for this brutal killing.
"A reward of up to £20,000 is still available for any information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person/s responsible for Ade's murder".
Antonia Frances, Ade Shode's mother said: "All our family thinks about Ade every day. We remember his laugh and smile and he always remains in our thoughts.
"It still hurts us to think that whoever killed Ade is still out there and we pray that it doesn't happen to anyone else's family"
“After two years I’d ask anyone who may be able to help us to speak to the police. If you are not happy talking to the police then please tell someone and get them to pass the information on. What is important is that the police can track down whoever took my son from us.”
Two men and two women from the Northolt area were arrested in connection with the crime and they have been bailed to return on dates in September 2013 pending further enquiries.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Incident Room at Hendon on 020 8358 0300; if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
