Police name murder victim who was stabbed after motorbike collision in Greenwich

Detectives have named the teenager who was stabbed to death after he came off his motorbike following a collision with a car.

Cameron Murfitt, 18, was found by emergency services in the Woolwich Common area on March 15 with stab wounds after reports of a stabbing on the junction of Academy Road and Shooters Hill in Woolwich.

Despite the efforts of passers-by, police and paramedics, he died at the scene.

A post-mortem examination held at Greenwich Mortuary on March 17 found the cause of death to be a stab wound to the thigh.

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder on March 16 and has been bailed to return on a date in mid-April.

Detectives say there was a collision between a white car and a motorbike being ridden by Cameron.

As a result, he came off his bike and the suspect exited the vehicle and stabbed him. At this stage officers believe both parties were known to each other.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has information, video or images that could assist police, is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4622.
