Joe's Story

Joe was a white, British male from a stable family network who lived in Norwich. He was criminally exploited in 2019 to carry drugs for the promise of money. Unbeknown to Joe this was the start of him becoming embroiled in a life of drug dealing, gangs and knife crime. 

On 28th January 2022, aged 18, Joe received a phone call from a mate in trouble. He went to help and was savagely attacked by 3 males who were trying to rob a flat for drugs and money. They were armed with knives and a sword when they chased Joe and stabbed him 7 times. 

Joe sadly died in hospital little over an hour after the attack. On the 30th August 2023, the 3 local males were found GUILTY of Joe’s murder and later sentenced to a minimum of 21 years each.
