A man who was stabbed to death near Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been named and pictured for the first time.

Police were called to Northumberland Park just before 6am yesterday morning (April 7) after a man was found unresponsive.

Okechukwu Iweha was found at the scene suffering from stab injuries.

Emergency services carried out CPR but the 46-year-old, who was from the area, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Although formal identification has not yet taken place, Okechukwu’s next of kin have been informed of his death.

A post-mortem examination is due to be held at Haringey Mortuary later this week.

The Metropolitan Police have launched a murder investigation into Okechukwu’s death, and have urged any witnesses to come forward.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, who is leading the investigation, said: “We are working hard to build a timeframe to establish what has happened.

“Were you woken up by a disturbance, or did you see anyone running from the area?

“I would ask that you check any private CCTV or dash cam footage to see whether you captured anything that might assist us.

“Another family has been left grieving and we are doing everything we can to find answers to their questions and locate whoever is responsible for this murder.”

Chief Superintendent Caroline Haines, who is in charge of policing in Haringey, added that her thoughts remain with Okechukwu’s family.

She said: "I would like to reassure the local community that we are working around the clock to assist specialist detectives with their investigation.

"We are grateful to residents for their patience and understanding while we go about this crucial work.

“The crime scenes and forensic work will have caused disruption but it is imperative that we gather any evidence that might prove vital in leading to an arrest.”

No arrests have been made and police enquiries continue.
