Stephen Morrisson, 30, was found with stab wounds at a petrol station in Epping Road, near the Wakes Arm Roundabout, shortly before 8pm on Tuesday, 23 June.
He was taken to hospital, where he passed away.
A murder investigation was launched and, initially, it was believed that Stephen was assaulted across the border in Greater London.
The Metropolitan Police began to lead the investigation but Essex Police has taken control, as they now believe he was attacked in a car park in Epping New Road between the Robin Hood roundabout and the Wakes Arms roundabout.
Detective Chief Inspector Julie Gowen, who is leading on the investigation, said: “First and foremost my condolences go to the victim’s family and friends, at what is a very sad and difficult time for them.
“We have been working with our colleagues in the Metropolitan Police Service to establish what happened to the victim that evening.
“We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area between 3pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday, 23 June and saw or heard any suspicious or unusual behaviour.
“We are particularly interested in anyone who was driving in the area and has dashcam footage.
“It doesn’t matter how small or insignificant you think your information is, it could be vital to our investigation.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact our Major Crime Team on 101 quoting crime reference 1191 of 23 June or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information can also be given anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
