After double murder investigation, a forensic vehicle was parked in front of a Wood Green block of flats.

The pair were claimed by neighbours, but officers have yet to identify them. 

A neighbour said that they were often out and about. They would be seen on their balconies, however, we wouldn’t see them together with any other people. 

“The father was partially deaf. While he was friendly, he never shot a fly. Sometimes he would request to use my smartphone.

“You will never know what happens behind closed doors. You might be surprised at what happens around you.

“They weren’t really close friends, but they knew each other’s dad.
