For a couple of days now there have been police cars non stop at a house half way down Gaywood Street. Strangely, although gossip has it that a man was arrested a day ago, and although there are at least two flats in the house, the front door has been kept open day and night, with a police car permanently parked outside. Just looked out today and the car is gone, but there is a policeman on duty standing outside the front door. Anyone know what is happening?

all is revealed. The arrested man has been charged with the murder of that New Zealand girl in her office in Kennington. He was unemployed apparently and was renting the flat in Gaywood Street. The police have been there day and night taking stuff away and guarding the premises and will apparently be there until Wednesday.

This is awful to hear. A suspected killer living in the area.

not great when it is just opposite your house!

I read about this poor girl being murdered when I was in New Zealand - it was on the front page of the New Zealand Herald. One of my friends worked at the same company; as you can imagine everyone there is devastated. The company has moved into temporary premises because they can't go back to the offices while the murder investigation is underway, but apparently they will never go back there now.

I thought the police had gone away, but just looked outside. The front door of the house is open with a police car parked outside. They arrested the man on Friday or Saturday so cannot imagine why they are still there.

It must be horrible for your friend and colleagues of the girl. I can quite understand why they would not want to return to the offices.

chavender - I have slightly edited your message. Hope that's OK.

Everyone - please don't speculate about what may or may not have happened. Thanks.

James, I don't mean this to sound agressive (!) I am just interested, why can't we speculate about what might have happened?

The Contempt of Court Act!

That's why I'm not keen on messages that imply guilt etc.

Thanks for providing that information and it is entirly reasonable! I suppose this (the forum) feels so informal, a bit like chatting with a person you meet in the street, that you forget about all the other people who also have access to the conversation.
