Canning Town murders – how were the bodies of the victims found and have there been any arrests?

April 30, 2019

THE bodies of two women have been found in the freezer of a London home sparking a murder probe, it has been reported.

Let’s take a look at the grisly case.

Where were the bodies found?

Cops were scrambled to the house of a sex offender in Canning Town, East London at 11.45am on April 26, 2019.

Police were responding to concerns for an occupant's "welfare" when they found the two corpses.

The bodies were discovered in the freezer of the home, according reports.

The two victims are not thought to be related.

They have not been formally identified, but one of the bodies believed to belong to Mary Jane Mustafa, 38, who vanished last May.

Have there been any arrests?

Police have not made any arrests but a murder investigation has been launched.

Detectives are still working on identifying the victims.

Cops believe the bodies are female and will carry out post-mortems in due course to establish how they died.

A police spokesman said: "Officers subsequently gained entry and discovered two bodies dead at the scene.

"The bodies are believed to be those of two females. We are working to carry out formal identification and trace next of kin.

"Post-mortem examinations will be held in due course. The investigation is being led by the Homicide and Major Crime Command.

"There have been no arrests at this stage and enquiries continue."

What have residents said?

Peter Emenyoun, 48, who lives in the neighbouring block, told The Sun Online: "We were in our bedroom when the police came but a policeman told my brother-in-law the killer stuffed the women's bodies in the freezer."

Raymond Dredge, who lives in a ground floor flat in the adjacent council block, said: "He did seem a bit dodgy. He used to bring a lot of girls back.

"I smoke outside so I have seen him with a few girls of a similar age to him. He would just be walking along with them."

Another neighbour added: "He used to have parties in his flat where he'd bring a lot of girls and there would be a lot of noise."

A woman visiting the murder scene this evening said she feared her aunt could have been one of the murder victims because she lives in the red brick two storey building.
