The body of a young boy has been found in a public park in London. He had been brutally beaten to death and burnt.
The boy, of Asian origin, is believed to be between 12 and 14 years of age. He was found under a tree near a playground in a public park in north London. There were no clues as to his identity and the cause of death appears to be brutal blows to the head with a blunt instrument.
After his death, his body was liberally doused with fuel and set on fire, causing severe and extensive burning. Detectives are keeping an open mind as to the motives, which could have been racial, related to sexual abuse or drugs or a ritual killing, a copycat version of the recent satanic murders in Germany.
