A man who came to the aid of a stab victim as he lay dying in an east London street has been asked to come forward by police.
Few details about the Good Samaritan who helped Marvin Hogan in Leyton are available, other than he is white and carried a rucksack.
Marvin, 28, was stabbed in the chest in Thornhill Gardens on June 4.
Police made four arrests in connection with the killing. All suspects have been bailed while enquiries continue.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said Marvin’s death is not thought to be gang related.
The mystery man rested his rucksack under Marvin’s head while emergency services rushed to the scene.
They arrived too late to save his life.
Detective Chief Inspector Gwyn said: “Are you the man with the rucksack who came to the victim’s aid? Approach us in confidence.
“We are appealing for any witness or anyone with information to please contact us as soon as possible. The answer to solving this murder lies within the local community and we would ask people to come forward.”
