A £10,000 reward is being offered in an appeal for information following the murder of a 20-year-old man from Plaistow.

Otas Sarkus was shot twice in the head in Raymond Road, near Upton Park station, on Wednesday, 18 August at around 10.50pm.

He was rushed to hospital but died two days later.

An image has been released of a stolen white volvo 4X4 SUV car that police believe was used by those involved.

The car was taken from Manor Park on Monday, 14 June and found set alight in the early hours of Thursday, 19 August.

A reward of up to £10,000 is being offered by the charity, Crimestoppers for information given, that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for his murder.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen this car around the time of the murder or dashcam footage that captures the vehicles movements on that night.

There have been no arrests made.

Director of Operations at the charity Crimestoppers, Mick Duthie said: “We are certain that somebody will know who is linked to this murder and will have crucial answers that are vital to getting justice for Otas’ relatives.

“It’s hard to imagine the suffering this young man’s family and friends must be experiencing, which is why our charity is offering our cast-iron guarantee of anonymity to whoever comes forward and tell us what they know.

“Crimestoppers supports people by giving them the options when it comes to reporting crime. We are here to help people do the right thing.

“Please contact us – you’ll be doing the right thing for Otas, his family and the wider community.”

To claim the reward, information must be passed to Crimestoppers’ 0800 555 111 number or via the anonymous online form.

Detective Inspector Louise Caveen who leads the investigation for the Metropolitan Police said: “My team continues to work tirelessly to analyse evidence as we work towards establishing who murdered Otas Surkas but we also need the help of the community.

“I am sure there are people out there who know who did this. I hope the offer of this reward may help whoever is in possession of that information to think a little bit harder about doing the right thing and come forward to assist.

“Otas’s family and friends have been left devastated by his murder and they deserve justice.”

Any photos, footage or information which could assist the investigation can be submitted via the police portal.
