Images released of victims of Deptford double murder

Detectives investigating the murder of a father and daughter in Deptford have released images of the victims and continue to appeal for information.

The investigation, although still in early stages, continues to piece together the final movements of both Noel and Marie Brown.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding, leading the investigation, said: “I am asking the public to assist police by providing information relating to those coming and going from the New Butt Lane address.

“Noel Brown had a significant routine and at this stage it appears that he was not seen after Thursday, 30 November. I would like to hear from anyone who either saw Noel in the week leading up to his death, or who has information concerning anyone who visited him at home.

“Similarly, anyone who can provide information concerning the movements of Marie Brown is asked to call our incident room.

“No matter how insignificant or small a detail it may seem, any information will assist my team in piecing together the events leading up to this tragic incident.”
