Last night, the family of Antoin Akpom met with the husband and father of four people who died in a house fire in Leicester last week.
Dr Taufiq Al-Satter hugged Mr Akpom's father at an event at their local mosque.
His wife and three children died in a house-fire in Spinney Hills on the same night as Mr Akpom was killed.
Police say there has been no evidence to link the fire deaths to Mr Akpom's murder.
