Nasty Kenny Noye was yesterday accused of “finding another victim” after the heartbroken father of the man he murdered in a road rage died suddenly.
Kenneth Cameron never got over the loss of his son Stephen, who was stabbed to death by mobster Noye in 1996.
He suffered another serious blow when his wife Toni died in 2016.
Her ashes were secretly buried by him next to her son.
Kenneth, 75, was found at his retirement home in Ashford, Kent, and pronounced dead at a nearby hospital on March 15.
An inquiry has been opened and adjourned until June 6th.
Though there’s no indication Noye was directly involved in his death, a source said, “Noye has Kenneth’s blood on his hands.”
They added: “It is the final tragic chapter in the history of the Cameron family, whose lives were torn apart by the senseless murder of Stephen.
“Kenneth never got over Stephen’s death, but it got worse when Toni died.
“Noye didn’t physically kill Kenneth in the same way that Stephen did, but the repercussions of what he did haunted him.
“Noye caught another victim, although this time he didn’t use a knife.”
After killing 21-year-old Stephen in May 1996, Noye went on the run and became Britain’s most wanted man.
After an international manhunt, he was arrested two years later when Stephen’s fiancée, Danielle Cable, helped identify him at a Spanish restaurant.
Noye was jailed for life in 2000 with a minimum sentence of 16 years – before his controversial release in June 2019.
In 2020 he was spotted at the M25 motorway junction in Swanley, Kent, where he stabbed Stephen to death.
Kenneth said at the time: “It’s like Noye walking on Stephen’s grave. I feel disgusted that he returned to the place where he took my son’s life.”
A source said Noye’s release “broke Kenneth’s heart”. He added: “It brought everything back and he could never understand the injustice.”
Noye had previously served a 14-year sentence for handling gold bars from the £26.3million Brink’s-Mat robbery in 1983.
He was driving under license when he killed Stephen.
The police eventually tracked him down to Barbate on the Costa del Sol. Danielle – just 17 at the time of Stephen’s murder – was flown out to identify Noye and he was arrested the next day.
She testified at his trial and is still living under the witness protection system for her safety.
Noye, now 74, had previously been acquitted of the 1985 killing of undercover police officer John Fordham on grounds of self-defense.
He made the same allegation regarding his assault on Stephen, but the jury convicted him of murder.

Upon his release, it emerged that Noye had been staying at his younger lover’s house and was spotted driving a £25,000 SUV.
At the time, Kenneth said, “He’s laughing in the face of justice.”
Toni, 73, died after contracting a superbug. Kenneth revealed he buried his wife’s ashes next to Stephen’s remains in 2016.
He said: “They were so close in life that it seemed right to bring them together in death.
“We had a ceremony at Stephen’s grave and buried her ashes with him.”
It is understood that Kenneth’s funeral will take place after Easter.
