The death of 44-year-old Leonard Williams is being investigated by London Police.
Williams’ friend, Walter Katigakyok, is charged with second-degree murder.
Officers from forensics were seen coming and going from the home, carrying out boxes.
People gathered on the street to watch. A couple of the officers were laughing about something. No idea what.
It was a sad scene to me. Williams is a father of three.
We don’t know how old his children are but having just lost my father, I know how hard it can be no matter what your age.
He also had a girlfriend and they had been together for six years. She said he talked about spending more time with his children.
Losing someone at Christmas is so hard.
Maybe he struggled with alcoholism, as media reports have stated, and he spent time on the street, but his murder isn’t something we should shrug off.
Every time someone is murdered in London, we all suffer to a degree.
If we show no regard, our city becomes a bit harder, colder.
