Appeal for witnesses following death of man in window fall

November 20, 2012, 1:58 pm

Police are appealing for witnesses and information following the death
of a man who fell from a window in W10.

Officers were called at 03:05hrs on Saturday 17 November to reports that
a man had fallen from a second-storey window of a block of flats in
Chesterton Road.

Police and London Ambulance Service attended and the 39-year-old man was
taken to St Mary’s Hospital where he later died.

He has been named as Shaka Wilmot, (2.10.73) of Chesterton Road, W10.

A post-mortem examination on Sunday 18 November at Westminster Mortuary
gave cause of death as head injury consistent with a fall.

Mr Wilmot’s death is being treated as suspicious at this stage but
detectives are keen to hear from three people they believe were inside
the premises at the time and subsequently made off.

The two women and a man are believed to have called for an ambulance and
then decamped, possibly in a vehicle, before police arrived.

They are described as one black man, one black woman and one white or
mixed race woman, all aged approximately 30.

Detective Chief Inspector Charles King, from the Homicide and Serious
Crime Command, said: “We don’t know how the victim came to fall from the
window which is why we are particularly appealing for those who were
with him to come forward and help. We believe we know the identify of
one of the women inside the flat.

“The incident is being treated as suspicious at this stage but we need
to piece together the events that led to this man’s death. If you can
assist please contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721
4054 or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555
111.
