Police say they have yet to establish the cause of death
A MAN being treated as a suspect in a murder investigation – launched following the death of a woman in Dartmouth Park – is too unwell to be interviewed, police have said.
The body of Angela Best, 51, was found at an address in Dartmouth Park Hill on December 15.
Ms Best, from Tottenham, was pronounced dead at the Peabody housing association flat just before 8pm.
Three weeks on from her death there has been no arrest, but a man who was taken to an east London hospital following the incident is being treated as a suspect, Scotland Yard said.
The man, in his 60s and understood to be known to Ms Best, remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition. The cause of his injuries is not believed to be suspicious.
This week the Met said the man was not well enough to be interviewed. Officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with Ms Best’s death.
A post-mortem examination at Whittington Hospital mortuary the day after Ms Best was found failed to establish a cause of death. Officers are awaiting the results of further tests. Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room at Barking police station on 020 8345 3985.
