Fresh appeal over Greenford singer murder

Ian Newtion
Mr Newtion is believed to have sung at a party prior to his death

Detectives investigating the murder of a singer who was found with his throat slashed in an underpass have made a fresh appeal a year after the killing.

A total of 24 teenagers were arrested and later released during inquiries into the death of Ian Newtion, 45, also known as Scoobie Santino.

The delivery driver was heading home after finishing a gig at a nearby club.

A passer-by found him in an underpass at the Greenford roundabout. He had been attacked with a broken bottle.

Detectives have issued CCTV pictures from a nearby petrol station of young people seen in the area in an attempt to jog memories.

The Metropolitan Police has offered a £20,000 reward for information.

The singer had a hit single on the reggae charts with Cash Money in the 1990s.
