The Met Police are offering a £20,000 reward for information that can help them identify, arrest and prosecute the murderer or murderers of father of two rapper Kelvin Easton who was known as “Smegz”. He was stabbed to death at the controversial Mile End nightclub Boheme in the early hours of Sunday morning 27th March. He was 23 years old.
A post mortem revealed that he died at the scene from a wound to the heart caused by the glass of a champagne bottle. The nightclub lost its license as a result of this incident.
Four individuals have been arrested and bailed to return ending further enquiries to east and north London police stations on a date in late May.
Detective Chief Inspector Charles King said Kelvin was: “a dedicated father and a much loved brother and son. He is greatly missed by his family and friends.” Friends of the aspiring rap artist left tributes on his online social networking page saying: “RIP to this lost soldier” and “RIP Smegz, rest with the angels sweet x”.
DCI King said:
The Boheme nightclub was very busy on the night Kelvin was attacked. I am confident that there are people who saw what happened that night and I hope that this significant reward will encourage anyone with additional information to come forward. There are special measures we can take to protect identities and we will do everything possible to ensure witnesses remain anonymous.
DCI King’s appeal for witnesses, information and details of the substantial reward offered.
Anyone with information that may assist should call the incident room on 020 8345 4142.
