Investigation into the death of Corey Dobbe


12 Oct 2021

Today it will be four months since Corey Dobbe was murdered on Harleston Close in Hull.

Corey was just 23 years old when he was killed on the 13 June 2021.

The Senior Investigating Office (SIO) Detective Chief Inspector Alan Curtis said “For operational reasons I am unable to share much of the information we have gathered in connection with Corey’s death.  Our investigation into his murder has continued to focus on locating Moise Djuku who we believe has crucial information.

“Corey’s body has now been released to his family and his funeral took place on 16 September.  We remain in support of Corey’s family as they continue to come to terms with Corey's senseless killing.

“A huge amount of work has been undertaken by our team of investigators.  They have acted on every single piece of information that has been called in to us.  I would appeal again for anyone with any information, no matter how small, that they might have in connection with Corey’s death to come to us.

“Our investigation focus remains to locate Moise Djuku.  As yet we have not been able to find him, despite extensive searches, a nationwide wanted appeal and a BBC Crimewatch appeal.

“Someone out there knows where he is and we would welcome any information that would help us locate him.”

Crimestoppers continue to offer a £5,000 reward for information given to them that locates Moise Djuku - See the appeal here

“Crimestoppers is completely independent of the police. Anyone giving information is anonymous and remains anonymous and we don’t find out who they are. I would urge anyone who has information to contact them and tell Crimestoppers what they know.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Humberside Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or go online Here
