Police, CPS Say Late London Teenager Damilola Odeyingbo Was Not Murdered After All

An 18 year-old man who died in Chislehurst after a reported fight was not murdered, police have said.

The teenager had long been included in the list of young Nigerians  considered victims of London violent crime.

Oluwadamilola Odeyingbo died on the morning of January 10 after an incident in Empress Drive the previous evening which led to a murder investigation.

At the time the cause of death was unexplained but police now know he died of multiple organ failure from a pre-existing medical condition.

Met Police statement read: “Officers from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, having consulted with the CPS, are satisfied that no offences of murder or manslaughter have been committed.

“There are ongoing enquiries in relation to other offences not linked to the death of Mr Odeyingbo.”

As part of the initial investigation, an 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder before he was later released.
