Police are offering a huge financial reward for information as they mark one year since a fatal stabbing in Hounslow.

Officers are now offering £20,000 for any leads that result in the identification, arrest, and prosecution of the individual accountable for the death of 44-year-old Darren Augustin.

Darren was fatally stabbed in Brentwick Gardens, TW8, during the early hours of Friday, April 26.

Detective Inspector Suzanne Soren of Specialist Crime, Homicide & Major Crime Command said: “Officers have been working tirelessly on this case for a year now.

“While the investigation continues, we are appealing to people to dig deep into their consciences - if you have information that can help, I urge you to come forward.

“Despite the passing of time, the heartache felt by Darren’s family has not faded.

“Allegiances and friendships will have changed, in particular there may be people who felt they could not come forward before, but I urge you to do so now.

“Darren was only 44 when he was killed. He left behind a loving family who are desperate to know what happened to him. We still need the public’s help to find who was responsible for Darren’s brutal murder.

“Were you in the area at about 5am on Friday, 26 April 2023? Did you see or hear anything? Do you have any information that could help police at all?

“We are offering a generous reward of £20,000 for any information that could lead to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person responsible for his murder so if you know anything at all, we encourage you to contact police.

“You can call police on 020 8721 4961 or contact us anonymously via the independent charity, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“Any information you have could help to take a killer off our streets, as well as giving a grieving family the answers they deserve."
