Freed From Prison

Kenneth Noye Biography

The former gangster, 71, has served nearly 20 years for the vicious stabbing of Stephen Cameron, 21, on an M25 slip road near Swanley, Kent, in 1996.

The cold-blooded murder took place in front of Mr Cameron’s 17-year-old fiancée Danielle Cable while Noye was out on licence from a previous prison term.

He is now a free man after a parole board praised his ‘improved victim awareness’, ‘clear life goals’ and ‘ability to control his emotions.’

The Ministry of Justice said in a statement: ‘We understand this will be a distressing decision for the family of Stephen Cameron and our thoughts remain with them.

‘Like all life sentence prisoners released by the independent Parole Board, Kenneth Noye will be on license for the remainder of his life, subject to strict conditions and faces a return to prison should he fail to comply.’

Last month the Parole Board confirmed his release from an open jail has been approved after it ruled he is no longer a ‘significant risk to the public’.

Despite his history of violence stretching back decades, the parole panel said they were impressed by the killer’s ‘decision-making’, ‘maturity about his situation’ and ‘insight into his past behavior’.
