Police investigating the murder of Turkish national ‘Boxer Cetin’ whose body was found in Epping Forest, have arrested two people.
Officers arrested a 22-year-old man on Wednesday - he was bailed later that day to a date in late October.
Yesterday, officers arrested a 40-year-old man also on suspicion of murder.
He is in custody at an east London police station.
On September 9 police were called at 7.05pm to Epping Forest, after a member of the public reported having found a body.
