Two more people have been arrested in connection with a Neasden murder investigation.

The body of a 38-year-old man, later found to be Justin Bello, was found in a communal area at the back of Lovett Way on November 25.

The Met Police have not yet revealed the cause of his death, but say it was not from a stab or gunshot injury.

Homicide detectives from the Specialist Crime Command are investigating, supported by the North West Command Unit.

A 48-year-old woman and a 38-year-old woman were arrested on July 1 and July 8 respectively on suspicion of assisting an offender and perverting the course of justice.

They have been bailed to return pending further enquiries – the 48-year-old until the end of July and the 38-year-old until the beginning of August.

A number of other arrests have been made in connection with the investigation, including a 41-year-old man who was arrested in Norfolk on November 29 on suspicion of murder, and a 48-year-old man in Cricklewood on November 30 for the same reason.
