6 Murders You Haven't Seen In The Media

A list of murders that didn't get much recognition in the news

By Shauna MullenPublished 2 years ago Updated 2 years ago 8 min read

In today’s day and age, the sad reality is that people get murdered and only a few get the recognition from the media and news that it needs to make people aware. In London, knife crime is prevalent and never talked about in the eyes of the media. In 2019 alone, 147 people were killed in London, with stabbings accounting for two-thirds of that number. Here are 6 victims of stabbings whose killers were convicted in the past year but didn’t get much recognition in the media.

Michael Paul Bapista

Michael Paul Bapista,24, was stabbed five times, with one going through the heart, and left to die on the street on December 19th 2019.

Michael visited a location close to his killer’s, Ozughan Altun, 30, shop. The police got a call from Altun about an altercation which had taken place around 7:15pm and found Mr Bapista dead at the scene upon arrival. Altun claimed he had been stabbed by Michael and was taken to hospital for treatment. In the ambulance, he told paramedics that the victim had stalked his family. It later came to light that Ozughan Altun became jealous of Michael Paul Bapista after he had a brief relationship with his ex-girlfriend. The police found scraps of paper in his pockets with drawings of Mr. Bapista and the words “Michael is an idiot.” Altun was arrested at the hospital on suspicion of murder. In police interviews, he continued to try to paint himself as the victim claiming he had become “petrified” of Michael Bapista.

However, CCTV footage showed Altun threatening his victim and also shows the moment he discarded of the scissors that he plunged into Michael Bapista’s chest. During the investigation, a video was found on Altun’s phone of him burning a strip of photos of Michael Bapista and his girlfriend’s faces on them while saying “I’m going to remove you from my life for good” to the camera. They also found countless messages about Bapista from the months leading up to the violent attack. Altun became obsessed with his victim because his girlfriend had left him and had a brief relationship with Mr.Bapista. When the relationship ended between the woman and Bapista, she restarted her relationship with Altun. Ozughan Altun was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 19 years.

Armed with machetes, they attacked Santino and another 18-year-old male he was with at the time. Santino’s friend managed to take refuge in his nearby home however Mr Dymiter was attacked by a succession of slashes and stabbing blows. After letting out a scream for help to his friend, he collapsed on the pavement and police announced him dead upon arrival. The two teenage attackers were on electronic tag at the time as they were released from YOI’s (Young Offenders Institute) only weeks before the murder after being convicted and spending time for kidnap, false imprisonment and blackmail over a young male.

Only one of the boys has been able to be named due to turning 18. Rahiem Anderson made no comment to police about the murder but whilst on remand at a YOI he was heard bragging about the murder to other inmates. The getaway car was found abandoned and had fingerprint matches to the two young boys. Their electronic tags also placed them in the area of the attack. Anderson had previous convictions for possession of a bladed article. February 2021, Rahiem Anderson was sentenced to a life sentence to serve a minimum of 18 years and 3 months. The younger male, now 16, has a minimum serving of 16 years.

Crosslon and his group of friends decided to meet up with the caller in the Deptford Creek area. Elijah Morgan, 20, and his friend Jedaiah Param, 21, had just got into a taxi when Mr Davis decided to open the rear door and attack Elijah with a mallet. The two men got out the cab and attacked Crosslon ,who had since dropped the mallet, along with two other unidentified assailants. All four men had armed themselves with knives, chased down Mr Davis, surrounded him and ultimately killed him. He suffered at least nine wounds to his head, back and chest during the attack. Most of the attack was caught on camera. During the trial, the CCTV was played over 15 times to prove that Mr Davis was unarmed and defenseless during the attack.
