Water Lane murder investigation: Investigation “progressing” say police

Crime / Tue 7th Jul 2020 at 07:01am

ESSEX Police have told YH that the investigation into the murder of a man outside a house on the outskirts of Harlow is “progressing”.

Robert Powell who was aged 50, was murdered when he was shot multiple times from a car on Water Lane on Saturday 13 June.

Essex Police issued a couple of statements at the time. On each occasion, they said it was “progressing”.

So, almost a month later, we asked if they had made any arrests and were they following any definite lines of inquiry?

They didn’t answer those particular questions but told us: “Our investigation is progressing, with detectives working tirelessly to investigate the death of Mr Powell”.
