Welcome to the Murder Mile true-crime podcast and audio guided walk of London's most infamous and often forgotten murder cases, set within one square mile of the West End.
On Boxing Day 2011, 18 year old Seydou Diarrassouba was stabbed to death outside of Foot Locker on Oxford Street, he was a promising young man from a good solid family who had a great start in life, and yet, believing that he had to carry a knife, instead of becoming someone great, he became just another statistic.
As many photos of the case are copyright protected by greedy news organisations (and I don't want to be billed £300 for copyright infringement again), to view them, take a peek at my entirely legal social media accounts - Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
The location of Foot Locker at 363 Oxford Street, W1 is marked with a blue ! in the far right. To use the map, simply click it. If you want to see the other murder maps, such as King's Cross and Soho, you access them by clicking here.
Here's some useful videos to go with the story; one the left is a tribute video created by friends of Seydou and right is some grainy footage of the aftermath.
