Case synopsis:

Patrick Oyeri, 29, was stabbed to death in Hounslow on 4 September 2017.

Police were called to reports of a fight between two groups in Rosebery Road at around 3.35pm.

Mr Oyeri was found lying on the floor suffering from a stab wound and was pronounced dead at the scene at 4.18pm.

A post-mortem gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the liver.

Three men aged 18, 23 and 24 were arrested on 19 September. The next day Daniel Qureshi, 18, (25.11.98) and his brother Zane Qureshi, 24, (9.5.93), both of Catherine Gardens, Hounslow, were charged with murder.

The murder charges were later dropped and the case remains unsolved.

On 26 February 2018 Daniel Qureshi went on trial for violent disorder and possession of a bladed article at Isleworth Crown Court. Abbas Issa, 18 (02.09.99) of Summmerwood Road, Isleworth, admitted violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon the same day.

Qureshi was convicted on 12 March.

On 24 May Qureshi was sentenced to four years imprisonment and Issa was sentenced to three-and-a-half years imprisonment.

The court heard Qureshi attended hospital at 3.52pm on the day of the murder with a three inch cut to his right thigh. His clothing was found to match CCTV images of a man carrying a knife at the scene. 

Issa travelled to Tanzania two days after the murder but was arrested on his return on 11 October 2017.

He was linked to the fight by CCTV and phone evidence and forensic evidence recovered from the VW Golf which left the scene.

Detective Inspector Mark Long from the HMCC said: "I am glad that two people who were involved in the events leading up to Patrick's murder have been brought to justice. This was a terrible event in which a young man lost his life, leaving a family bereft and struggling to understand why this tragedy happened.

"The inquiry into who murdered Patrick continues and we are still appealing for anyone with information to contact the dedicated incident room number on 020 8721 4054, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

"Any information the public gives could provide the vital evidence that could bring Patrick's killer to justice."
Patrick Oyeri's mother, said: "Patrick's death was a big shock to me and to the all family, we don't know if we will ever recover from it and we hope the truth will come out."

Patrick’s sister, Katherine Oyeri, said: "Patrick's life was taken by a cowardly, senseless stabbing. A father was taken away from his 5-year-old daughter, a brother was taken away from his siblings and a son was taken from his parents: he said "see you later" to his mother in the morning, with her not knowing he would not return.

"No parent should have to bury their child, and no-one should ever have to die alone, suffering and helpless. Whilst we as a family are trying to come to terms with our tragic loss, the police are doing everything possible to make sure the perpetrators are prosecuted. We want justice for our gentle giant.

"Our family are appealing to the public to help us seek justice, to help us strengthen and come together as a community. We ask anyone who knows anything connected to this horrible crime, no matter how small, to please be brave and come forward with what you know. We appeal to you to help us all stand against violence in our neighbourhoods."

Anyone with information should call the HMCC incident room number of 020 8721 4054 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
