Detectives deny body find at Queensbury search house
2:05pm Tuesday 10th July 2012 in News
Police have denied they have discovered a second body at the Queensbury home of a man found dead three weeks ago, where ammunition and hazardous chemicals were later found.
Neighbours reported seeing bones in the back garden of Simon Marshall, 36, who was found dead in his Kenmore Road semi-detached house on June 16.
But the Metropolitan Police said the rumour was not true, as they continue to surround the house and carry out extensive forensic searches, two weeks after a cache of ammunition and chemicals was discovered at the house.
Two vans, two police cars and in recent days a satellite truck have parked in the street, and the front and back garden is shrouded by forensic tents as specialist teams work.
Detectives have refused to disclose any more information about the operation, which is now entering its fourth week in total.
And neighbours the Harrow Times spoke to said they were frustrated at the lack of information being provided to them.
One, who asked not to be named, said: “We’ve been told that there’s nothing to worry about, but that’s it.
“When you don’t get told any more you start to wonder what’s going on.”
An inquest into Mr Marshall’s death at North London Coroner’s Court was adjourned on June 21 until December, pending the results of the police investigation.
