Tribute To Murdered Westcliff Man
The family of a man who was murdered at a property in Westcliff have paid tribute to him.
Jeffrey Shepherd, 50 of Beedell Avenue, Westcliff was attacked in Beedell Avenue on Sunday July 5.
Police say he died of blunt trauma.
His family said: "Jeff was loved by his family and friends and was a doting father to his seven children. He had a good heart and would take care of anyone, even if it meant giving them his last dime. He had a bubbly personality and loved his children with all his heart. He will be sorely missed by us all." Jeff's 10-year-old daughter said: "Daddy I love you."
Carlyle Daley, aged 46 of Beedell Avenue, has been charged with his murder.
A man who set a fire on the ninth floor of a block of flats in Southend, killing a neighbour and her unborn child, has been made subject of a hospital order.
Heart can reveal since so called 'legal highs' were banned last May - Essex Police have made 9 arrests relating to the supply or possession of the drugs.
