A murder investigation has been launched following the discovery of a body in a New Barnet flat after a fire on Thursday.
Firefighters who tackled the blaze at Sheridan Lodge on Potters Road called police when they discovered the body of 49-year-old Antonio James Tammaso, who lived alone in the flat. They also found a petrol can in one of the rooms.
Initially the death was thought to be non-suspicious, but a post mortem examination on Friday was inconclusive and indicated that Mr Tammaso had suffered a number of wounds prior to the fire.
Police are appealing for information, especially from anyone who may have seen someone carrying a red petrol can.
