Police have named the man stabbed to death in Seven Kings on Sunday.
Detectives identified the victim as Akeem Dylon Barnes, 24, as they renewed their appeal for anyone with information to come forward.
Police were called to Telegraph Mews at 6.10am on November 24 to reports of a group of people fighting.
Officers did not find anyone suffering stab wounds at that location, but a short time later were called to Ilford Lane, where they found Dylon with knife injuries.
They administered first aid until paramedics arrived and Dylon was rushed to hospital, where he died at 12.36pm.
A post-mortem examination today (November 26) found the cause of death to be a stab wound.
About 6.30am on Sunday, a second 24-year-old man was brought into an east London hospital with stab injuries.

"It is vital that we find those responsible for this vicious, and in the case of Dylon, deadly attack.
"I urge those who know the killers not to protect them, help us remove dangerous, violent individuals from your community.
"If you know who they are, my officers are waiting to speak with you, and anything you tell us will be treated in the strictest confidence."
