Piotr Woroneicki was found dead in Parma Crescent in Clapham Junction on 23 November 2017.
He died from compression to the neck and was thought to have been killed by through being held in an arm lock. It was thought that he had been dumped there.
Following his death a large amount of drugs and money was found at his home and the police said that they thought that his murder might have been related to the criminal activities that he was involved in and an organised crime syndicate.
The police said 'Piotr was last seen alive at 11.32pm on Wednesday, 22 November 2017, at New Covent Garden Market where he appeared to be in reasonably good spirits. He was found by a member of the public at 05:00hrs on 23 November, some hours later, in Parma Crescent, which is approximately three miles in distance from New Covent Garden Market. A large quantity of Class A drugs and close to £100,000 in cash was found in Piotr’s flat which leads us to believe he may have been involved in some form of criminality and that his death may be linked to an organised crime syndicate, however this has not yet been proven. I still want to hear from anyone who may have seen Piotr that night or knows anything about why he was killed'.
It was noted that in the days around his murder two men had attempted to break into his flat in Clapham Junction five times, although it wasn't known if they were the same men. CCTV footage of the men trying to get in through his front door was later released. It was also reported that they had suceeded in breaking in on one occasion by picking the locks but had left the money which was in the livingroom.
Several people were arrested in relation to his murder but no one was convicted.
It was noted that on the night of his murder it had been raining heavily which it was said might help people remember the night. The rain was described as being of 'biblical proportion'.
Piotr Woroneicki was a Polish national.
