The victim was named as Franciszek Karol Malinkowski, 51, a construction worker originally from Poland although formal identification is yet to take place.

Officers were called at about 11.35am after Mr Malinkowski’s body was discovered on overgrown waste ground between Ermine Road in South Tottenham and the nearby railway line.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and next of kin have been informed.

A post-mortem examination on April 28 at Haringey Mortuary gave the cause of death as multiple injuries.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses and information.

Det Ch Insp Tim Duffield, who is leading the investigation under the Homicide and Major Crime Command unit, said: “Mr Malinowski was a hard working man with no obvious enemies. We are trying to build a detailed picture of his life and I would urge anyone who knew him, or for that matter anybody with information about the scrubland near Ermine Road, to contact us.

“I guarantee that your information will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

Ten men have been arrested so far in connection to the incident.

On Sunday, three men aged 32, 50 and 30-years-old were arrested near the place where the body was found, with a 38-year-old man arrested later that day. The 50-year-old was released without charge while the other three were bailed to return at a date in early May.

During the early hours of Tuesday morning, two further men aged 41 and 33-years-old, were arrested in Stamford Hill on suspicion of murder. They remain in custody.

On the afternoon of Tuesday, April 28, four further men aged 30, 38, 40 and 48-years-old were arrested in Stamford Hill in connection with the incident and remain in custody.

Any witnesses to the incident or anyone with information are asked to call the incident room on 020 8358 0400, 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
