Police are investigating a possible link between two ‘unexplained’ deaths at St Margaret’s churchyard, Barking, after bodies were found just over three weeks apart.
A 21-year-old man was found by a dog-walker at the North Street church, on Saturday, September 20, and will be identified at a post-mortem examination later today.
Gabriel Kovari, 24, from Deptford, south London, was also found by the same walker in the corner of the graveyard on August 28.
Police are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths, and do not believe the dog-walker had any involvement.
The Met has asked anyone who was near the cemetery on either date, or with information about the deaths to 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
