Tottenham railway line murder victim 'no obvious enemies'

A construction worker whose body was found by a railway line in north London had "no obvious enemies", police investigating his murder have said.

Franciszek Malinkowski, from Poland, was discovered by officers on overgrown waste ground near Ermine Road in South Tottenham, on Sunday.

The 51-year-old, who lived in Finsbury Park, died from multiple injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ten people have been arrested in connection with his death.

'Build a picture'

Det Ch Insp Tim Duffield, of the Met, said: "Mr Malinowski was a hard working man with no obvious enemies.

"We are trying to build a detailed picture of his life and I would urge anyone who knew him, or for that matter anybody with information about the scrubland near Ermine Road, to contact us."

Three men, aged 30, 32 and 50, were arrested on Sunday near the scene. A 38-year-old man was arrested later that day.

The 50-year-old has been released without charge, while the other three men have been released on police bail.

On Tuesday, two further men, aged 33 and 41, were arrested in Stamford Hill on suspicion of murder. They remain in custody.

Four other men - aged 30, 38, 40, and 48 - were also arrested in connection with the murder. They too remain in custody.

Formal identification of Mr Malinkowski is yet to take place. His next of kin have been informed.
