Police have offered a £20,000 reward in the hunt for the killers of a man shot dead in Leyton.

Errol McKenzie had been at an address in Tottenham visiting people he knew to discuss the sale of a cable box on April 11, 2010. 

He left the address near Northumberland Park railway station at about 10.45pm.

He then visited a shop in Lea Bridge Road, where he bought alcohol.

After leaving the shop instead of heading to his home, which was only minutes away, Mr McKenzie turned right and headed to the playing fields in Seymour Road.

He was shot three times in the chest around 30 minutes later.

Mr McKenzie, 37, was well known as the ‘cable man’ in the borough due to his job fixing cable boxes.

He was given first aid at the scene of the shooting by London Ambulance Service, but died almost immediately after being shot.

Detective Chief Inspector Dave Whellams, of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command, is leading the investigation. He said: "Five years on from Errol's murder we are appealing for the public's help to track down the person or people responsible.

"We still do not know how Errol travelled back from Tottenham to Leyton that Saturday night.

"I would ask anyone who saw Errol on his journey that night to get in touch, there are routes he could have taken including public transport or taxis.

"We know he bought some food, but not where from, and alcohol in Leyton. Did you see him that night?

"Was Errol due to meet someone that night in the park?

"He was there for at least half an hour before he was found dead. Were you in the park? Did you see Errol?”

Found beside Errol's body was a white take away carton, the alcohol that he bought, and a carrier bag with two cable boxes.

Det Chief Insp Whellams added: "There is no obvious motive for Errol's murder. Over the years people's allegiances and loyalties change, if you know something concerning the events of that evening, no matter how insignificant that they may seem to you, its vital that you let us know.

“Please help us find the person or persons responsible and give Errol's family the answers they so desperately want."

Police previously released CCTV images of two men riding bikes who they believe could hold vital information about Mr McKenzie's final movements.

The investigation has been reviewed by the Murder Review Group.
