Erdogan Guzel, 42, was shot dead in a drive-by shooting in Lordship Lane, Wood Green, on 10 July 2015. Police said he was an innocent father-of-two who happened to be standing outside the bakery his family owned when shots were fired from the rear passenger window of a black Honda Civic. A woman was also injured. Erdogan’s brother Yunus Guzel, said in a statement: “My brother’s children have had to endure the pain of losing him, during what should by rights have been carefree years. The loss of their father, who was taken from them in such a cruel way, has caused serious, emotional trauma. Although I have done my best to support them in coming to terms with this, nothing can make up for what happened that day in 2015. Erdogan was a key figure in the family bakery business and as such, the family has struggled to operate effectively without him – this has resulted in heavy debt and very sadly, his children have lost their family home in Tottenham. I would like to appeal directly to anyone who has even the smallest piece of information which could assist police, whether this is about his killers or something else which you haven’t yet shared with the investigation team.” Contact the incident room on 020 8345 1570.

  1. If I was a investigator, I’d look into charities popping up where people loosely come and go , see if there is any connections like they used to attend, say for example a Choir . I just noticed in London they are the sort of places to have ex homeless and if someone was a Psychopathic type who wanted to know victims they would probably attend places like that , basically I am saying this because some people give me the creeps, it maybe just a feeling off the back of trying magic mushrooms over summer, (people call it flash back’s) but I wouldn’t forgive myself if my instincts were onto anything.

  2. Laura – I think that it is extremely unlikely that these people were stalked/ targeted by a ‘psychopath’. Most of them probably knew the killer/s, and most of the murders were probably spontaneous. Lots of people are creepy. Very few are killers.
