SHOT TO DEATH: Nathan Williams was killed in 2009

SIX YEARS after the murder of a 24-year old man in southeast London, detectives will be returning to the scene with his family in the hope that new information will help them find who is responsible for his death.

A £20,000 reward is available for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for Nathan Williams’ murder.

Nathan, of Kennington died after he was shot in Ludwick Mews, New Cross, on July 28 2009.

At about 1:30am, Nathan was sitting in his black VW Golf when he was shot several times. He died in hospital a short time later.

Nathan was shot with two different firearms, a shotgun and a handgun. Witnesses suggested at least four suspects were involved in his murder.

Over the course of the investigation detectives have spoken to approximately 100 people and made two arrests, however Nathan’s killer(s) remain undetected and no motive for the shooting can be ascertained.

Detective inspector Peter Hine, who is leading the investigation, said: “It is now six years since Nathan was senselessly murdered and his devastated family still wait for justice.

“I am confident that there are people out there who know why Nathan was shot that night and I am appealing to them to come forward. Six years is a long time to remain silent and deny Nathan’s family their right to know the truth.”

Hine continued: “I appreciate that people may feel apprehensive about coming forward but I would like to reassure them that we can take measures to protect them if required.

“The perpetrators of gun crime and violence rely on a climate of fear in order to silence the communities they blight with their crimes and it is crucial that people with information come forward.”

Officers will be attending Ludwick Mews today (Jul 28) between 4-6pm handing out appeal leaflets and talking to the local community.

Detectives are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to contact the Incident Room on 020 8785 8267; if you wish to remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
