Police are investigating the death of Milton Papadopoulos


The family of a 41-year-old man whose unexplained death has prompted a police investigation has described him as “selfless and caring”.

Milton Papadopoulos died at his home in Parkfield View, Potters Bar, on Wednesday evening.

A cordon remains in place outside the address as officers investigate the 41-year-old’s death.

Police said today (Friday) that a post mortem had proved inconclusive.

A statement released by Mr Papadopoulos’ family said: “Milton was the most caring and loving son (our son).

“He was a true brother, uncle, friend, and godfather to many of his friends’ children and his absence has left a huge void in all our lives.

“He was highly respected and loved by everyone who knew him.

“One of his friends has quoted him as being ‘a peoples person’, known for his generosity, one who was always ready to help, selfless and caring in everything he did and towards everyone he met.

“We will always remember the impact he made on everyone that knew him, having touched the hearts of many.

“He will be forever in our hearts and in our thoughts and his memory will live within us all.”

A police spokesman told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “A full and thorough police investigation into the circumstances of the death, which is currently being treated as unexplained, is in progress and the public will be updated when there is further information available.”
