A further two people have been charged and another man has been arrested as part of an ongoing murder investigation in Bushey.
Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Major Crime Unit launched an investigation after Vishal Gohel (pictured), aged 44, was discovered unresponsive inside a flat in Bushey High Street at around 10.45pm on Sunday, January 23.
He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
Two people were charged in connection with Vishal’s murder yesterday (Friday, February 4). They are:
· Tianna Edwards-Hancock, aged 18, of Fresh Wharf Road, Barking
· Tervin Leslie, aged 21, of Hurst Street, London SE24.
Both will appear at St Albans Magistrates’ Court today (Saturday, February 5).
Two women also appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court yesterday, charged with murder. They are:
· Georgia Bruce-Annan, aged 20, of Harts Lane, in Barking
· Faith Hoppie, aged 21, of Blake Avenue, in Barking.
Both were remanded in custody until Tuesday, February 8, when they are due to appear at St Albans Crown Court.
A 23-year-old man was arrested overnight and remains in police custody at this time.
Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins, from the BCH Major Crime Unit said: “While we have now charged four people with murder, we are still keen to hear from any witnesses or anyone with information.
“Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any information, no matter how small it might seem, it could be vital for our investigation.”
Specially trained officers are supporting Vishal’s family, who have asked for their privacy to be respected at this difficult time.
