Death

On 15 October 2021, Amess was stabbed multiple times at his constituency surgery at Belfairs Methodist Church Hall in Leigh-on-Sea. He was treated at the scene, but died from his injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:13 pm.

Amess's killing was later declared a "terrorist incident" by the Metropolitan Police. The investigation, led by Scotland Yard's Counter Terrorism Command, is exploring "a potential motivation linked to Islamist extremism". The suspect, Ali Harbi Ali, a 25-year-old British citizen of Somali descent, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder and later detained under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000. On 21 October 2021, he was charged with murder and preparing terrorist acts under the Terrorism Act 2006. He will stand trial in March 2022.

On 27 October an inquest was opened into Amess's death, but was immediately suspended "pending the outcome of the criminal proceedings". The suspension would be reviewed in April 2022. Coroner's officer Paul Donaghy told the inquest that, the day after Amess's death, a Home Office pathologist carried out a post-mortem examination which showed the cause of death was multiple stab wounds to the chest.
