Folkestone Murder Appeal

Folkestone murder detectives appeal for dashcam footage

Murder detectives investigating the death of a man in Folkestone are appealing for motorists with dashcam footage to come forward.

Joe Daniels, 58, was found unresponsive inside the Red Cow pub in Foord Road, shortly before 11.30am on Wednesday 22 November 2017.

He had suffered an injury consistent with a gunshot and was pronounced dead at the scene, where a firearm was also recovered.

Detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate would now like to hear from any motorists with dashboard cameras installed who travelled in the immediate vicinity of the Red Cow between 8.30am and 11.30am on the day Mr Daniels was discovered.

The pub is located near the junction with Black Bull Road.

Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Richard Vickery said: ‘We are continuing to carry out enquiries into the circumstances behind Mr Daniels’ death and cannot yet rule out any third party involvement.

‘A review of any available video evidence forms a vital part of every murder investigation and that includes any footage that may have been picked up by dashboard cameras.

‘I would strongly encourage anyone with footage, no matter how mundane it may first appear, to call the appeal line on 01843 222289 quoting reference 22-0452. People with information can also call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.’
