A man whose remains were found in a flat in east London may have been "dead for weeks", the Metropolitan Police said.

The body of Lee Buckley, 43, was found by police at his home in Ashanti Mews, Hackney, on 21 June.

His death was initially treated as "unexplained", but after injuries were found during a post-mortem test the Met said it was "suspicious".

A man, 45, arrested in the inquiry, has been bailed until next month.

Det Ch Insp Neale Baldock, of the Metropolitan Police, said: "I am eager to piece together Lee's last movements and trace his friends or associates to help with this investigation.

"They may hold some key information on what happened to him."

The post-mortem examination could not determine a cause of death, and police are waiting for the results of further tests.
