Ten arrests in South Tottenham murder as police say victim from Finsbury Park 'had no obvious enemies'
Detectives investigating the murder of a man found dead near railway tracks in South Tottenham have made six further arrests.
Police have also identified the victim as Francisek Karol Malinkowski, a 51-year-old construction worker from Poland who was living in Finsbury Park.
A post mortem at Haringey Mortuary gave Mr Malinkowski’s cause of death as multiple injuries. His next of kin have been informed, though his body is yet to be formally identified.
Of the ten people arrested in connection with the death since Sunday morning, two have been detained on suspicion of murder.
Investigators have also set up an incident room at Hendon to try and encourage witnesses to come forward.
DCI Tim Duffield, of the homicide and major crime command, who is leading the investigation, 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.
"I guarantee that your information will be treated in the strictest confidence."
Emergency services were called to the scene at 11.35am by a member of the public and police arrested three men nearby.
One of those has since been released without charge, while two others, aged 32 and 30, have been bailed until early May.
A fourth man, aged 38, was also arrested late on Sunday, and police revealed this morning that they have made a further five arrests.
In the early hours of yesterday (Tuesday), two men aged 41 and 33 were arrested in Stamford Hill on suspicion of murder and they remain in police custody.
Later that afternoon, four more men aged 30, 38, 40 and 48, were also arrested in connection with the murder. They also remain in custody.
