Dagenham: Men In Court Over Dismember Murder
Three men are to appear in court tomorrow charged with murder after a man's dismembered body was found in a lake.
Scott Hunt, 41, Chas Quye and Elvis Kwiatkowski, both 35, will also face a charge of perverting the course of justice when they appear at Redbridge Magistrates' Court in east London.
The charges relate to the death of 39-year-old Neill Buchel, who disappeared from Braintree Road, Dagenham, on March 13.
Mr Buchel was reported missing five days later when he failed to contact his two daughters. Police were called later when members of the public saw a leg floating in water at White Hart Lakes, also in Dagenham.
Met Police said Mr Buchel and a friend were involved in a row with a group of men in Heath Park, Dagenham, at about 3pm on the day he disappeared.
Police were called and a 41-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of public order offences and issued with a penalty notice for disorder.
Mr Buchel then went to Stansgate Road, but made no contact with family or friends and was reported missing by his estranged partner on March 18.
Quye, of Stansgate Road, Dagenham, Hunt, of Braintree Road, Dagenham, and Kwiatkowski, of Clopton Close, Royston, were later arrested.
A fourth man, Colin Bushaway, 60, of Gregory Crescent, Greenwich, was charged this month with perverting the course of justice. He has been bailed to appear at Redbridge Magistrates' Court on May 20.
