Teenager held over Cheryl Tariah death in Barkingside
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a teenage girl whose body was found in east London.
Officers found 17-year-old Cheryl Tariah's body in a flat on the High Street, Barkingside, after being called to reports of a disturbance on Tuesday.
Cheryl, of Chelmsford, Essex, died from strangulation, a post-mortem examination concluded.
The 18-year-old remains in custody. A 21-year-old man held on Thursday was released with no further action.
