Body found in Epping Forest confirmed as missing teenager

Police do not believe that there was any “third-party involvement” in Richard Okorogheye’s death (credit: Met Police).

Police have confirmed that the body found in a lake in Epping Forest is that of 19 year-old Richard Okorogheye.

The Metropolitan Police say they not believe anyone was involved in his death and are currently treating it as unexplained.

A forensic post-mortem has found no evidence of physical trauma or assault. The cause of death is yet to be confirmed as further investigations continue.

Richard Okorogheye was last seen leaving his family home in Ladbroke Grove on the night of Monday, 22 March. He was reported missing on Wednesday, 24 March.

Further enquiries have established that Richard took a taxi journey from west London to a residential street in Loughton.

He was captured on CCTV walking alone on Smarts Lane towards the Nursery Lane area and Epping Forest on Tuesday, 23 March. This was the last confirmed sighting of Richard.

Detective Superintendent Danny Gosling, Head of the Met’s Central West Public Protection Unit, said: “My deepest sympathies go out to Richard’s family at this incredibly difficult time.

“This was not the outcome that any of us had hoped for and we will ensure that his grieving family are well-supported by specially trained officers.

“I would like to extend my thanks to the many officers, staff and members of the public who have each played a part in the extensive effort to locate Richard.”
