Two years after builders found a body in a disused bar's freezer, a reward has been offered for information.
On October 15 2021, builders working at the former Simpson’s Wine Bar, in Romford Road, Forest Gate, discovered the remains of Roy Bigg.
Today the Met Police is offering a reward of up to £20,000 for information leading to the prosecution of his murderer.
Detective Chief Inspector Kelly Allen, of the Met's Specialist Crime Command, said: “It’s now been more than two years since Roy was found. Although our investigation, and previous media appeals have provided us with information about Roy’s life, we still need your help to identify who is responsible.
“Roy went missing in February 2012. We believe that his body may have been in the freezer for a number of years, and that he was aged about 70 when he died.
“Where was he between 2012 and 2021? To date there have been no confirmed sightings of him in this nine year period. Can you help?
“Anything you can tell us may prove invaluable in helping us discover what happened.”
A post-mortem examination was unable to conclusively identify the cause of death and the remains were identified through dental records.
Anyone who knew Roy Bigg should call the Incident Room on 020 8345 1570, call 101 or post on X @MetCC quoting reference CAD 4332/15Oct21.
