Police requested that anyone with information which could assist can call 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting ref 914/04APR

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    It was a 39 year old man, but you have not made it clear whether it was a 39 or 50 year old woman?
    The sad state of Plumstead today. The common is a no go area at night now. Poor woman.
    Years ago I’d take my dog for late evening walks in the summer? I would pick some wild rhubarb in the ravine for a rhubarb crumble and custard. So sad this is happening now?

    They haven’t said if it was a random attack or a domestic either way it is tragic
