The Metropolitan Police have relaunched an appeal for any information about those responsible for the murder of a man in Lewisham nearly two years ago.

Earl Warburton was assaulted by a number of men who had entered his Loampit Hill flat and demanded money, on February 15 2012. He died at the crime scene after sustaining multiple injuries.

A £20,000 award is still on offer to anyone who provides information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of those responsible for Warburton’s murder.

Detective Inspector Murphy said: “It is now two years since Mr Warburton’s death. We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time of the attack and who may have seen or heard anything suspicious.”

Warburton ran a brothel, ‘Madonnas’ from his home in Lewisham. Murphy stated that the police are keen to speak to anyone who may have worked with him, leading up to the time of the attack.

“We appreciate that given the nature of the business Mr Warburton ran, people may be concerned about coming forward. We would like to stress that any information will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

Anyone with information can call the incident room on 020 8721 4868 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
