Mr Papadopoulos was found dead at his home in Parkfield View on October 22 last year, prompting Operation Pinene by detectives from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit (BCH MCU).

As part of the investigation into Mr Papadopoulos’ death, a 40-year-old man was arrested on Thursday.

The man, Sebastian Kimel, of Beechcroft in Stratton, was yesterday (Friday) charged with joint enterprise murder.

On Thursday, March 12, 42-year-old Arkadiusz Szarkowski, of Abbs Cross Gardens, Hornchurch, was charged with joint enterprise murder.

He was remanded in custody on March 13, and is due to appear at St Albans Crown Court on September 2.

Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Walker, who is leading Operation Pinene, said: “This complex investigation has continued to be a focus for the BCH MCU since October 2014.

“It is still very much a live investigation and we would like to hear from anyone who may have information in relation to our enquiries.”

She added: “We’ve previously appealed for information about a watch that it is believed to have been in the house in Parkfield View but is currently unaccounted for.

“We are still asking for public’s help in relation to the white gold Rolex Submariner, which has a blue face and serial number of V428230, so please contact my team if you have any information about it.”

Mr Papadopoulos’ family previously released the following statement: “We remain devastated at the loss of our beloved son, who was a gentle, kind and generous man, but we truly appreciate the hard work and on-going support from the police.

“We would ask that our wish to be left alone at this difficult time is continued to be respected.”
