The mechanic and his older rival-played by the actors Danny Walters and Steve McFadden in the BBC soap-were involved in a brutal fight on the boat when the gun went off and caused the ship to get out of control of another vessel. Dennis Mitchell was killed in the accident, leaving his mom Sharon distraught.
And in the episode of Friday night, an exhausted Sharon told Linda Carter how the police were searching for Keanu and keeping him to answer for all of it.
She said to Linda, "I don't remember the last time I slept If I close my eyes, all I can see is Denny on that boat and all that water
"I can't get it out of my mind. Linda, I'm so tired of that.
"The family liaison officer says police are looking for Keanu, but it's Phil they should be after." People were already convinced that Sharon would murder Phil for her son's death, and now they think he'll get away with it all.

As Keanu last month, Actor Danny Walters announced his exit from the soap, and he has no plans to return. Sharon made it crystal clear to him that after Dennis's death, she and her son would never wish to see him again.
While after the boat crash, Phil disappeared and was seen sobbing after Dennis was taken out of the water. When he comes to Walford, it is unsure.
