Dad-of-three was gunned down in his drive­way one year ago

PO­LICE have re­newed their ap­peal for in­for­ma­tion to catch the killer of Red­wan ElGhaidouni a year on from his mur­der.

The father-of-three was fa­tally shot as he sat in his car on the drive­way of his fam­ily home in Vine Lane, Hilling­don, just be­fore 7pm on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 3 last year.

A £50,000 re­ward still re­mains on of­fer for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the ar­rest and pros­e­cu­tion of the gun­man or any­one else who may be in­volved in the ex­e­cu­tion.

De­tec­tive Chief In­spec­tor Noel McHugh, said: “Ex­ten­sive en­quiries have been car­ried out over the last year and we have made good in­roads into un­der­stand­ing the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing Red­wan’s mur­der.

“Our pre­vi­ous ap­peals have been suc­cess­ful in en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to come for­ward and I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank lo­cal res­i­dents who have been so sup­port­ive of our in­ves­ti­ga­tion. How­ever, we still need to talk to oth­ers who may hold vi­tal in­for­ma­tion.

“I would re­mind peo­ple that a sig­nif­i­cant amount of money is on of­fer to any­one who can pro­vide in­for­ma­tion that leads to the pros­e­cu­tion of those who car­ried out Red­wan’s mur­der.”

Af­ter Red­wan pulled into his drive­way, he was shot mul­ti­ple times through the car win­dow.

The sus­pect fled on foot through an al­ley­way to Saun­ders Road.

He was wear­ing a dis­tinc­tive dark hooded top with a large logo on the front as well as dark bot­toms, dark gloves and dark shoes or train­ers.

CCTV also shows the man, again wear­ing the top with the large mo­tif, in Saun­ders Road on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions on Satur­day, Jan­uary 31 and Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 2.

Po­lice be­lieve that th­ese were failed at­tempts to shoot Red­wan.

DCI McHugh added: “Red­wan did have a crim­i­nal past and had been linked to drug im­por­ta­tion.

“He had been re­leased from prison al­most seven months be­fore his death but he had been work­ing full-time at a car deal­er­ship and en­joy­ing be­ing a fam­ily man again.

“We con­tinue to look into his back­ground for an­swers about what hap­pened but what­ever the cir­cum­stances, his mur­der has left three young sons with­out a father and his part­ner dev­as­tated.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion is asked to call the in­ci­dent room on 020 8785 8099 or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555111.

In Au­gust, 34-year-old Mar­wais Kakar of Great Field Drive, Uxbridge re­ceived a sus­pended jail sen­tence for pro­vid­ing false in­for­ma­tion to de­tec­tives in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­der.
