There have been two further arrests following the fatal stabbing of a man in his West Kensington home.
Julian Aubrey, 55, was found dead at his flat in Shaftesbury Place, Warwick Road, on Monday (October 30).
He was discovered by paramedics suffering from multiple stab wounds after a call to police at around 1.45pm that day; he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing have made two further arrests as they continue to appeal for information.
A 41-year-old man, from Lambeth, was arrested on suspicion of murder on Friday (November 3) and taken to a north London police station.
He has since been bailed to return on a date in November.
Two days later, on Sunday (November 5), a 39-year-old man from Kensington was arrested on suspicion of murder and remains at a west London police station.
DCI Luke Marks said: "I am appealing for anyone who was recently in the area of Shaftesbury Place and who may have heard a disturbance coming from one of the flats to contact us.
"We believe that Julian may have been killed at some point in the days prior to the discovery of his body.
"We need to find out about Julian’s movements and activity in those days, and would urge anyone who had contact with him over the weekend of October 28 and 29 and the days before to contact us right way.
"I would also like to hear from anyone who may know why Julian was targeted in his own home in such a violent way.
"Any piece of information, however small, may prove vital to my investigation."
Three other men - aged 48, 56 and 42 - who were previously arrested on suspicion of murder, have been bailed to return to police on a date in November.
A post-mortem examination took place at St George's Hospital mortuary on Tuesday (October 31) and gave cause of death as multiple stab wounds.
The investigation is being led by the Homicide and Major Crime Command under Detective Chief Inspector Luke Marks.
Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact the incident room on 020 8358 0200 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Information can also be tweeted to police @MetCC.
