These two murder cases in London in 2014 remain unsolved. Can you help?
Mashboor Hussain, 73, collapsed and died during a suspected burglary at his home in Tooting on 11 February 2014.
Police were called to the house in Selkirk Road at 11.45am after passers-by reported seeing two men banging on the front door. The suspects, one of whom was armed with a gun, forced their way into the house after Mr Hussain opened the door. After a scuffle in the hallway they fled on foot with a red Nike shoe box containing cash and a mobile phone.
Mr Hussain, a grandfather-of-eight, collapsed after police officers arrived at the scene and was pronounced dead at 12.53pm. His wife and daughter were in the house at the time of the incident. A post-mortem examination gave cause of death as coronary heart disease but the pathologist concluded his collapse was likely to have resulted from the disturbance at his home.
Two men were charged with aggravated burglary and manslaughter but the case was dropped in June 2014 after the Crown Prosecution Service discontinued the case due to insufficient evidence. The case remains unsolved.
DCI Graeme Gwyn said: “I believe there are still people who have yet to speak to us and would urge them to contact us. Were you in the area of Selkirk Road at the time? Did you see or hear anything? Mr Hussain’s family remain desperate to see those responsible for his murder brought to justice.”

Radio DJ Luke Jackson, 33, was stabbed to death at his mother’s home in Pimlico on 19 December 2014. Police were called to the address in Lumley Flats at 6.05pm and he was pronounced dead at the scene. A post-mortem found he had suffered multiple stab wounds including a fatal injury to his heart.
Police issued CCTV footage of two people they wanted to identify.
Detective Inspector Jon Meager said: “We believe that on the night of his death, Luke had arranged to meet two people at the flat where he was stabbed and killed. Officers are keen to find out why that meeting was arranged, and who arranged it.”
An inquest heard that Mr Jackson, known as MC Bluetooth, had been trying to arrange to sell £300 worth of MDMA.
Police made several arrests but nobody has ever been charged. Contact the incident room on 020 8358 0200
