The man stabbed to death in Tottenham, North London on Sunday, April 7 has been named by police as Okechukwu Iweha.

The 46-year-old was killed in Tottenham before 6am that day and was first found suffering from stab injuries in the Northumberland Park area.

When police and paramedics rushed to the area, he was pronounced dead at the scene, despite CPR and paramedics’ efforts.

His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

A post-mortem examination will be held at Haringey Mortuary later this week.

The Metropolitan police is urging anyone with information to call 101. No one has been arrested yet.

But Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Specialist Crime Command, said: “I am urging anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious to please come forward and speak with us.

“We are working hard to build a timeframe to establish what has happened. Were you woken up by a disturbance, or did you see anyone running from the area? I would ask that you check any private CCTV or dash cam footage to see whether you captured anything that might assist us.

“Another family has been left grieving and we are doing everything we can to find answers to their questions and locate whoever is responsible for this murder.”

Chief Superintendent Caroline Haines, in charge of policing in Haringey, said:

“Our thoughts remain with the family family who are having to come to terms with his life being taken in such a violent way.

“I would like to reassure the local community that we are working around the clock to assist specialist detectives with their investigation.”
