Two arrests in Canning Town double murder

THE INVESTIGATION into the murder of two women, whose bodies were found at a property in Canning Town last week, has been making speedy progress. A second man has been arrested.

The arrested men are:
a 50 year old man, arrested on Monday, 29th April, on suspicion of murder;
a 34 year old man, arrested on Tuesday, 30th April, on suspicion of murder.
Both remain in custody.

Police found two bodies after being called out just before midnight on Friday, 26th April to a home in Vandome Close, E14 by persons concerned about the welfare of the occupant. The matter quickly became a double murder investigation, led by the Homicide and Major Crime Command.

The police investigation is continuing, with police still in the process of trying to contact the victims’ next of kin and arrange formal identification of the bodies.

Speaking after the first arrest, North-East Command Unit Commander Detective Chief Superintendent Richard Tucker said, “The launch of any murder investigation is naturally of concern to the local community and we have borough officers in the area supporting colleagues from the Homicide and Major Crime Command as they investigate the full circumstances. A crime scene is in place and we would encourage anyone with information about what may have happened at this premises to contact police on 101, quoting CAD 4303/26APR.”
