Southend man held in flat fire murder inquiry

  • 8-25-2015

The body of a man, who was in his 60s, was discovered in Cedar Close, Southend, on 8 August.

The suspect, who is in his 40s, was arrested at his home in Southend.

The victim had been assaulted just eight days previously by three men during a burglary at his home, and detectives are now investigating whether it was linked to his death.
