Family urges Ricky Reel case review 16 years on

The family of a man who went missing and died 16 years ago is calling for a review of his case.

The body of Asian student Ricky Reel, 20, was found in the River Thames in 1997 after he and his friends were confronted by two white men who shouted racial abuse and attacked them.

An open verdict was recorded at Mr Reel’s inquest in 1999.

His family have told BBC London’s Ayshea Buksh they want police to investigate further after a woman contacted Mr Reel’s mother naming a suspect.
