Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a man in Potters Bar.

But detectives investigating the death of 41-year-old Milton Papadopoulos have yet to establish a cause of death, it has been confirmed.

Mr Papadopoulos died at his Parkfield View home on October 22.

On Friday night, a 35-year-old man was arrested at his home in Romford. He has been released on bail until January 13.

And the following day another man, aged 41, was arrested in Romford. He was bailed until February 2.

A white Vauxhall van was also seized by police in connection with Mr Papadopoulos’ death.

A statement released by Mr Papadopoulos’ family earlier this month said: “We’ve been left devastated by the loss of our beloved son and there’s a huge void in all our lives.

“We cannot even start to think about getting any sense of closure until we know what happened to our son.”

Police said enquiries are ongoing and no cause of death has been established.

Anyone with information has been urged to contact the force’s Major Crime Unit incident room on 01707 355 666.

Alternatively, people can call the police non-emergency number, 101, quoting Operation Pinene, or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
