Evidence Joel speaks after her 19-year-old son’s body was found in a lake in Epping Forest
The mother of Richard Okorogheye has spoken of her heart being “ripped apart” after the student’s body was found in a lake in Epping Forest, Essex.
Evidence Joel, a community nurse, said she was “completely hollow and devastated and empty” after police confirmed on Wednesday that the body found on Monday was that of her 19-year-old son.
“Life is already empty, there’s like a cloud just hovering around, it took the sun away from me,” she said. “At this moment of time I just want answers as how my son lost his life. I want answers. I desperately need closure.”
