22 October 2012
Police are appealing for witnesses following a murder in Lower Edmonton.
Officers were called at approx. 23:10hrs on Saturday, 20 October to Montagu Road N9, at junction with Goodwin Road, following reports of an assault.
A man, aged 28, had suffered a stab wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have been informed.
Whilst officers await formal identification they are confident the deceased is Teon Palmer, 28 [07.07.84] from the Lower Edmonton area.
A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.
At this early stage it is believed a car belonging to Teon Palmer had all four tyres slashed in the moments leading up to the assault. Up to seven black males, described as wearing hooded tops or jackets, were seen making off from the location.
Acting Detective Chief Inspector Andy Yeats, of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command, leads the investigation. He said:
"We know there were people in the area at the time of the assault on Teon Palmer. I would ask anyone who was in the area of Montagu Road and Goodwin Road, or the surrounding streets, to contact my team.
"A blue Vauxhall Astra car belonging to Teon Palmer was vandalised prior to the assault on him. I believe those who damaged the car knew it belonged to Teon. Did you see anyone hanging around the vehicle or an altercation in the vicinity of the vehicle?
"If you have witnessed anything, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please contact my team - your information could prove vital to this investigation."
Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 0208 345 1570 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
There have been no arrests at this stage, enquiries continue.
