Met Mystified Over Shocking New Cross Murder

Sickening details of the so far motiveless murder of 2 French Imperial College research students have emerged over lunchtime. The stab wounds inflicted on the two men were so extensive that the attack has been described as "frenzied" and the DCI in charge of the case spoke of how everyone involved in the investigation has been "deeply shocked" by the extent of the attack. No murder weapon has yet been found. The attacker set fire to the bodies and escaped but police advise that the perpetrator would undoubtedly have been bloodstained. Police want to speak to anyone who saw a person leaving the flat in Sterling Gardens in New Cross on Sunday night.
