Case synopsis:

Jordan Wright, 19, was stabbed to death in Blackheath on 19 April 2017.

Police and paramedics were called to Hervey Road at the junction of Begbie Road at around 8.10pm.

Jordan, who lived in Catford and was due to start an apprenticeship in the construction industry on 24 April, had suffered stab injuries and died after being taken to hospital.

A post-mortem confirmed the cause of death was an incised wound to the chest.

On 1 September 2017 Paul Akinnuoye, 19 (19.01.98) of Cobbetts Ride, Tunbridge Wells, was charged with murder.

Akinnuoye is due to stand trial at the Old Bailey on 5 February 2018.

The independent charity Crimestoppers offered a £10,000 reward for information leading to the prosecution of those responsible.

Detective Chief Inspector Diane Tudway, who is leading the investigation, said: "This murder has left Jordan's family devastated and has been a big shock to the local community.

"I believe Jordan knew the man who stabbed him, in fact it appears Jordan may have arranged to meet this man and others in the park off Begbie Road earlier that afternoon. The other men who attended this meeting will know exactly what happened to Jordan and who is responsible for his murder.

"Jordan was preparing to go on a family holiday - now his parents are planning his funeral. If you were part of that group, tell us what you saw. If you know who was part of that group when Jordan was stabbed, please contact police or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously."

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4005 or via 101.
