A MURDER investigation is under way following the discovery of a body in Harlington.

Police were called to Sipson Lane at 6.16am this morning (31) after a passing motorist noticed a person at the side of the road.

They found a man believed to be in cardiac arrest.

Despite the efforts of ambulance staff, he was pronounced dead at the scene. His death is being treated as suspicious.

While formal identification is yet to take place, officers are confident the man is Mohamed Muhiyidin, 28, of Southall.

Det Insp Melanie Pressley said: “We do not yet know how Mohamed came to be lying injured at the side of the road, but there will be people out there who do know.

“I would appeal to anyone with information to come forward.

“In addition, I would appeal to anyone who drove along Sipson Lane on Saturday or in the early hours of Sunday to check any dash cam footage they may have to see if it captured anything unusual.

“A family is grieving after hearing the terrible news that their loved one has been murdered.

“We will do everything we can to find out who is responsible, but we need the public’s help.”

Anyone with information should call 101, giving the reference 2365/31OCT. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
