Lee Peacock Wiki – Lee Peacock Biography
Police have found Lee Peacock, who was wanted in connection with two murders in Westminster after nearly a week-long search.
Officers are “confident” they discovered Peacock on a canal barge near Ferrymead Avenue in Ealing, west London, just before 6 pm on Wednesday. He had sustained serious injuries thought to be self-inflicted.
He is 49 years old.
London Ambulance Service paramedics and the London Air Ambulance were called to the scene, and the man was taken to hospital where his condition is believed to be life-threatening.
The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards was informed, and the Independent Office for Police Conduct have indicated they will be conducting an independent investigation of the incident, the force added.
Sharon Pickles, 45, and Clinton Ashmore, 59, were discovered fatally stabbed at separate locations last Thursday and early on Friday, with police treating the deaths as linked.
Emergency services were called to Ashbridge Street in Westminster just after 9.30 pm on Thursday after concerns were raised for the wellbeing of people inside the property.
A 45-year-old woman, later identified as Ms Pickles, was found with a knife injury, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
