Two murder inquiries launched in Luton on same day
Two separate murder inquiries were launched in Luton yesterday over the deaths of two men.
On Wednesday morning, a man in his 50s suffered serious head injuries after an assault in Mangrove Road.
Yesterday, he succumbed to his injuries in hospital and a murder investigation was launched, as previously reported here.
In a separate incident at 3pm on Wednesday, police attended an address in Hitchin Road after the body of a man in his 50s was found.
Despite initial reports that the death appeared to be non-suspicious, a 39-year-old man was later arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday afternoon (see here).
