A £20,000 reward has been offered by detectives for help finding the killer of a 59-year-old man murdered nearly six months ago in south-east London.

Police were called by London Ambulance Service to a property in Loampit Hill shortly before 02:25 GMT on Wednesday 15 February.

Earl Warburton, who resided at the flat, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination gave cause of death as multiple injuries.

The Metropolitan Police said the reward of up to £20,000 would be offered for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person or people responsible for the murder.

Det Insp Rick Murphy said: "We still need to hear from anyone who thinks they might have some information that can assist in our investigation.

"I am particularly keen to speak with anyone who was in the area during the early hours of Wednesday 15 February who might have seen or heard anything suspicious..."
