DETECTIVES in East London are offering a £40,000 reward this week in the hunt for Matalan store manager Jamie Simpson's killers almost a year on.
Jamie was stabbed getting ready to close the store in Dalston's Kingsland shopping centre on March 22 last year.
Scotland Yard today have released more CCTV footage of three suspects filmed entering the store in Dalston Lane at 8pm that day, loitering at an escalator in the shopping centre moments before Jamie was attacked.
Jamie was stabbed in the throat and died half-a-hour later.
Det Ins Jackie Sebire said: "It's almost a year on from Jamie's murder and we're certain members of the public know the identity of those involved.
"The CCTV stills we are releasing today are clear enough for a relative, friend or neighbour to identify the killers."
A silver Ford Fiesta getaway car the gang used, registration N170 DMF, was found vandalised in Dore Avenue, Manor Park, six miles away across East London, shortly after the murder.
Witnesses or anyone with information are being asked to call 020-8345 1585 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555111.
