Further appeal for information following murder of Ronaldo Scott in Brixton
Detectives investigating the murder of Ronaldo Scott in Brixton are appealing for anyone with information who has not yet spoken to police to come forward as images of two suspects leaving the scene are released.
Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn who leads the investigation said: “I am extremely grateful to everyone who has come forward so far to help us piece together the circumstances of Ronaldo’s death, but we know there are more people that we still haven’t heard from and we really need those people to get in touch.
“If you saw, or have heard anything since, no matter how insignificant you might think it is, at the very least your information could add certainty to details that we haven’t yet confirmed.
“I know that some people don’t want to speak to the police and I understand why. You may be frightened or have had problems or a bad experience with police in the past.
“Please know that you don’t have to speak directly to us - there are two ways you can provide us with information and footage that is important for our investigation without giving us your details.
“You can call Crimestoppers 100% anonymously. They will not pass your details onto us and they are not part of the police – they are completely independent.
“You can submit video footage from mobile phones, CCTV camera’s, doorbells or dash-cams or information via this link for the investigation - Public Portal (mipp.police.uk). You can do this anonymously or choose to submit your details and we will not contact you if you don’t want us to.”
An investigation was launched after police were called at 12:08hrs on Monday, 4 September to Morrison Road, SW9 to reports of a stabbing.
Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found 21-year-old Ronaldo Scott with multiple knife wounds.
Despite the efforts of police and medics to save him, Ronaldo was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
His family continue to be supported by specialist family liaison officers.
DCI Blackburn added: “We have recovered and examined a lot of CCTV from the area around the scene and today we’re releasing images of the suspects leaving the scene after they stabbed Ronaldo. Do you remember seeing them in the area around midday on Monday? Do you know who they are?”
Borough Commander for Lambeth and Southwark, Detective Chief Superintendent Seb Adjei-Addoh added: “Another young man has lost his life to knife crime, and my thoughts at this time are with Ronaldo’s family, friends and our local community.
“I know that the local community will be hurting about the loss of another young man. Officers from my Community Engagement team will be conducting patrols in the local area, so local people can expect to see more officers in uniform. Please speak to these officers if you have any concerns."
