“I am appealing for the public’s help,” said Detective Chief Insp Matt Bonner, of the Met Police’s Homicide and Major Crime Command.

I am keen to establish exactly what time he arrived there and why.

“We then believe the victim ran from the car and into Downhills Park Road, possibly being chased by the suspect. If you were in the area and saw anything please get in contact with us."
