[Billy Cox]

Detectives are continuing to appeal for information regarding the murder of Billy Cox in 2007. 

On Tuesday, 25 June, two men – aged 26 and 31 - were arrested on suspicion of murder. They were taken into custody at a south London police station and have since been bailed pending further enquiries.

William Thomas Cox (known as Billy) was aged 15 when he was fatally shot in his bedroom at his home address, at Fenwick Place in Clapham on 14 February 2007.

Arrests were made during the original investigation but to date, no charges have ever been brought in relation to the murder.

As with all serious cases, unsolved murder investigations are never closed and are subject to periodic public appeals and reviews.

The arrests were made following developments within the investigation.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command continue to investigate.

Anyone with any information relating to Billy’s murder should contact the investigation team on 020 8785 8286, Tweet @MetCC, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
