Neighbour of woman dead in flat Whitechapel east London charged with murder before Hackney stabbing

A 37-year-old man has been charged with murdering his neighbour after she was found dead in her London home – an hour before a double stabbing left a man dead nearby.  

Police were scrambled to an apartment in Whitechapel at around 1.30pm on Friday after concerns were reported about the ‘welfare of a female resident’.

Doctors pronounced the woman, named as Amy Parsons, 35, dead at the scene. 

They arrested her neighbour, Roderick Deakin-White later that day and have today charged him with her murder.

Just an hour later two men were found stabbed in nearby Hackney, with police called to the scene at 2.43pm.

The first victim, 29, was rushed to hospital where he later died. The second victim, a man in his twenties, is in a ‘stable’ condition in hospital.    

The day of bloodshed resulted in the 39th and 40th murders London has seen so far this year.

Deakin, who is believed to have known his alleged victim, will appear at Thames Magistrates’ Court tomorrow. 

Ms Parson’s family has been informed, but formal identification and a post-mortem examination awaits.   

Meanwhile detectives probing the Hackney murder are questioning a 16-year-old boy arrested on suspicion of GBH at the scene. 

The suspects of the double Hackney stabbing arrived at the scene in a ‘Ford SUV type vehicle’. 

A road lock down was put in place along Frampton Park Road and Loddiges Road after police were called to the scene. 

Officers were then told of another man, believed to be in his twenties, had been stabbed in nearby Wilton Way.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Vandenbergh of the Met Police’s Homicide and Major Crime Command leads the investigation – he said: ‘This was a shocking attack that happened in broad daylight in a residential area.

‘Our enquiries have established that the victim was in a black Mercedes car prior to the attack. The suspects arrived at the scene in a white Ford SUV type vehicle – at some point the victim has left his car and has been attacked in Frampton Park Road.

‘Work, including CCTV analysis, continues but we also need to speak to people who witnessed this attack and the events surrounding it.

‘Were you in the area and did you see anything? If so I would urge you to come forward and speak to police as soon as possible as you may have information that could assist this investigation.’

 ‘A 16-year-old male was arrested at the scene on suspicion of GBH – he was subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody at an east London police station.

‘Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 020 8721 4961 or call 101 and quote CAD 4373/26Apr.

Mike Mukuna, pastor at the nearby UCKG help centre, was walking close to the Hackney  scene in the immediate aftermath of the stabbing.

‘When I arrived it just happened. He was just bleeding on the floor,’ he said.

Mr Mukuna said locals had gathered around to help and had the man in the recovery position.

He could hear people say ‘place your hand on him’ to stop the flow of blood.

‘I could see his breath was getting shallow,’ he said, adding: ‘I saw the blood coming out but because people were around I couldn’t see where it was coming from.’

Mr Mukuna said the emergency services arrived quickly, probably within a minute.

A man who lives in nearby Exbury House, opposite Frampton Food, said: ‘It’s an estate isn’t it? What goes on goes on. It’s like all the estates.’

A woman who lives nearby, and who also did not want to be named, said she saw an air ambulance, adding: ‘I came out of my house moments after it happened.’

She said she thinks the air ambulance landed in a nearby school car park.

The woman recalled that there has been similar incidents in this area in the past.

A red object, which looked like a towel or item of clothing, could be seen lying in the road in front of the tent.

A youth worker who lives nearby, and gave her name as Hannah, said the stabbing victim on Frampton Park Road was around 26 or 27.

She said she went to school with him, adding that he is a ‘decent young man’.

She added: ‘He keeps himself to himself. He’s very pleasant when you see him.

‘It’s got to the point that the kids don’t value lives any more.’

She added: ‘It’s just sad that this couldn’t have been prevented.’

Hannah said anti-social behaviour is common in the area.  Dean Saliba, 40, said he witnessed the scene when he arrived at a shop on the street.

‘I turned up after. Someone in the shop said he was stabbed in the back as he ran to escape,’ said Mr Saliba, from Bethnal Green.

‘He was having a seizure when I arrived and there was a lot of blood.’

Another man who lives nearby, but did not want to be named, said: ‘The area is changing. There’s a lot of affluent people have moved in.’

He added: ‘It’s quiet. You feel safe here. It’s a safe area.’
