Three months on from the killing of 34-year-old John Pordage, shot in Chelmsford on August 5, police are still trying to trace Bradley Blundell who has links to Norwich.
Officers want to speak to the 17-year-old in connection with the murder, and yesterday one of Mr Pordage’s friends appealed directly to Blundell to hand himself in.
Detective Chief Inspector Martin Pasmore, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “I would strongly urge Blundell to contact police and give himself up.
“Anybody who is found to be assisting him in any way will be subject of a thorough investigation and could find themselves prosecuted for assisting an offender.
“I consider him to be dangerous and ask members of the public if you see him, do not approach him but call 999 immediately.
“I also urge anyone who has information on Blundell’s whereabouts but does not wish to contact police directly to please contact Crimestoppers anonymously.”
Blundell was last known to be living in Chelmsford and has links to Great Baddow and the Thurrock area. He also has links to the Norwich area of Norfolk.
Crimestoppers are offering a £5,000 reward for information about Blundell’s whereabouts. Call 999 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
