The man, in his 30s, was forcibly removed from his home address in Edgware, north London, at approximately 5pm on Sunday, detectives said.

He was reported missing, but discovered dead at around 1am the following day, in a property in Burton Road, Kilburn, north west London. Police said he had been beaten prior to his death.

A post-mortem examination carried out on the victim’s body gave cause of death as a head injury.
