Murdered kidnap victim found in Kilburn identified

A kidnap victim whose body was found in a north London property has been named by police.

Ferell Benjamin, 38, of Gahame Park Estate, Colindale, was found in Burton Road, Kilburn, on 15 November, eight hours after being "forcibly removed" from another address.

Officers said the victim had been beaten before his death.

A post-mortem examination found he died of a head injury. Police are treating the incident as murder.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police said: "We do know that the victim was forcibly removed from an address at approximately 1700 GMT on Sunday, 14 November in Edgware and he had been beaten prior to his death."

On 16 November a 21-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of murder and a 23-year-old man was arrested in connection with the inquiry.

Both were bailed to return in January.
