A hunt was on for weapons that were used during a stabbing where a man was stabbed.
Essex Police were asking anyone who knew the whereabouts of the weapon that was used to kill the man who was in his 30s and lived in Laindon.
The victim was found with stab wounds in Iris Mews on Sunday at 9.30 pm but died at the scene.
Five teenagers were detained on suspicion of murder, but so far four have been released without charge.
However, Detective Chief Superintendent Stephen Jennings has urged anyone with information to come forward to the police if they’ve not already done so, and he said that officers were looking to trace any weapons that might have been dumped on the estate encompassing Iris Mews.
