New appeal in Neil Buchel murder investigation

Police investigating the murder of Neil Buchel, whose body was recovered from a lake in Dagenham, have made a fresh appeal for information.

A body was subsequently recovered from the lake and officers said they are confident it is that of Mr Buchel who has not been seen since March 13.

DCI Chris Jones, Homicide and Major Crime Command, said he was keen to hear from anyone who can build up a "fuller picture" of Neil Buchel's movements between March 13 and April 1.

"I would also reiterate appeals to anyone who has used the lakes recently if they have noticed anything unusual. In particular any local anglers who may have seen any suspicious activity or any new faces not usually present at the lakes,” he added.
