TRIBUTES have been paid to a man who died after suffering serious knife injuries in South Ockendon.
The family of Daniel Adger who was murdered in Eden Green on Monday, August 21, have issued the following tribute.
They said: “Danny was far from perfect but he did not deserve to die the way he did. He was a lovely, go lucky and caring son, brother, father, cousin and grandson.
“Danny had the most infectious laugh, was funny and had the biggest heart. He would help and support anyone.
“Danny was a genuine person and would have given the shirt off his back to help others. However, Danny stood alone and would never be in the crowd but would always have other people’s backs.
“Danny and his sister Kezia are now together. We will never stop thinking of them or stop loving them. They will both be missed.”
Daniel Adger, 34, from South Ockendon, was attacked at around 1pm on Monday, August 21. He was taken to hospital but sadly died upon arrival.
A post mortem examination was carried out Wednesday, August 23, which found he died as a result of multiple injuries.
Lee Dowman, 50, of Lytton Road, Grays, was charged with murder and is due to appear at Chelmsford Crown Court on Tuesday, October 31.
Officers also arrested a 42 year-old man from Tilbury, a 31 year-old woman from South Ockendon, a 32-year-old man of no fixed address and a 21-year-old woman from London on suspicion of murder. They have been released on police bail until a date later this month.
A 30-year-old man from Barking who was also arrested on suspicion of murder has been released under investigation.
