£10k reward for information over Tile Hill murder and suspicious disappearance

A REWARD of up to £10,000 is being offered for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for Daniel Shaw’s murder – and the ‘kidnapping, disappearance and possible murder’ of John Robbins.

Crimestoppers has appealed for any details and it is now being considered Mr Robbins may also have been murdered. He has not been seen since March 21.

Daniel Shaw, who was 28 years old, was shot near or at his home in Torrington Avenue, Tile Hill, Coventry on Sunday, March 25.

He was found in Copland Place, Tile Hill and pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene as a result of a single gunshot wound to the chest.

In addition, it is believed John Robbins, aged 33, was kidnapped and taken to a Torrington Avenue address and violently assaulted.

His disappearance is considered ‘out of character’.

Pauline Hadley, West Midlands regional manager for Crimestoppers, said: “A young man has been murdered and another has disappeared in suspicious circumstances. It’s deeply distressing for family and friends and also for the wider community to know that such violence is taking place in their midst.

“At Crimestoppers we believe everyone has the right to feel safe, which is why we urge anyone with information to speak up and tell our charity what you know. We guarantee you will remain 100 per cent anonymous. Always.”

Crimestoppers say the reward will only qualify if information is passed to Crimestoppers’ 0800 555 111 number or via the non-traceable anonymous online form. Information passed directly to police will not qualify.
