Family of man murdered in Woodford Green speak of their loss
The family of Luke Harwood have said he will never be forgotten, in a statement issued by the police.
They said Mr Harwood is “greatly missed by so many people”.
The family, of Hornchurch, added: “He was so young and had so much life left to live.
“He should still be alive to share his life with us and to be a father to his son, as well as his daughter whom he never met.”
Mr Harwood was falsely accused of raping a girl who had visited the house he shared with his killers in Romford.
