The new CCTV catches the two men who happen to be walking near the football club Kelso Park, right after they shot Mejid Hamzy, police believe.

“We suspect they may have hidden weapons or other equipment associated with the murder somewhere in Deepwater Park, or that they may have actually used this (place) as a meeting place,” Detective Chris Goddard told the media today.

Police were “relatively confident” in finding anything important today in the large park area or surrounding waterways, he said.

“We are reviewing and revising our CCTV footage, and the review of these footage has led us to be here today and has also opened up other important lines of investigation that will help the investigation,” he said.

“Given the scale of the organized crime networks involved, we obviously want to address this as soon as possible.”

In September, police released CCTV footage of two suspected assassins believed to have hit the trigger and killed Mejid Hamzy and Fares Abounader, a 39-year-old Comanchero bike, in independent, cold-blooded shootings only a few weeks apart.

The same two men are also featured in the new CCTV footage released today, which showed them walking near Kelso Park Football Club.

Police have previously released photos of the men driving a black Mercedes in the Moorebank area 20 minutes after the killing.

The two men – one of whom was christened “Mr Blond” after his black hood accidentally slipped off the head of CCTV footage – have knowledge and familiarity with the area, police believe.

“We think these people may live close to the area,” Detective Goddard said.

He hoped that someone would recognize “the very characteristic white hair” of one of the men and come forward with information. ‘
