Family pays tribute to man stabbed to death in Epping

Stephen Morrisson died after being stabbed last week

The family of a man who was fatally stabbed in Epping Forest has said his death “leaves such a big empty hole that can never be filled.”

Stephen Morrisson, 30, from Plaistow, passed away in hospital after he was found injured in Epping Road, near the Wakes Arms roundabout, at around 8pm on Tuesday, 23 June.

A 30-year-old man from London, who was arrested in connection with the incident, has been released on bail until Friday, 24 July.

In a tribute released through Essex Police, his family said: “Our Stevo, he was larger than life itself.

“He was taken too early and so tragically and our lives will never be the same again.

“He leaves such a big empty hole that can never be filled.

“We ask that you please respect our privacy at what is a very difficult time for us all.”

Investigators believe Stephen was attacked in a car park adjacent to Epping New Road, between the Robin Hood roundabout and the Wakes Arms roundabout.

Detectives want to hear from anyone who was in the area between 3pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday, 23 June, and saw or heard any suspicious or unusual behaviour.

They are also keen to speak with anyone who was driving in the area and has dashcam footage.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Essex Police’s Major Crime Team through its major incident public reporting site.

Alternatively, you can call officers on 101 quoting crime reference 1191 of 23 June or independent charity Crimestoppers completely anonymously.
