Murder rumour unfounded

May 24 2009
Charing Cross case was a serious assault, not murder, says Metropolitan Police Rumours that a homeless person was murdered near Charing Cross police station are unfounded, the Metropolitan Police has said. The Pavement heard reports that a body had been seen under wraps near the station on the morning of 28th February, and that the victim, a homeless person who slept nearby, had been kicked to death. It now seems likely that the incident was not murder, but serious assault. The victim, who is still in hospital suffering from severe injuries, is not believed to be homeless. The incident took place at 3am on Chandos Place.
