Following a desperate plea on BBC’s Crimewatch to catch her son’s killer, the mother of Corey Davis Junior has urged the public to break “wall of silence” surrounding his shooting.
Keisha McLeod, who appeared on Crimewatch Roadshow on Tuesday, today renewed an appeal for witnesses to come forward with information on the murder.
Corey, known as CJ, died in hospital last September after being shot in broad daylight in Forest Gate.
“CJ was a fun, loving, kind, handsome young boy, just 14 years old,” Keisha said. “He loved to make us laugh and dance with his funny routines. He had real talent and such potential.
“I’m appealing directly to the community. If my son’s life has been taken for the wall of silence to be broken, let it be broken today. Please don’t ignore my voice, please don’t ignore my pain.
