Post-mortem examinations have revealed that two men, found murdered in Thorney, died from stab wounds.

The bodies of 56 year old John Chapman [pictured - right] and 31 year old Lukasz Slaboszewski were discovered in a dyke in the village of Thorney, near Peterborough, on Wednesday (3 April).

A Cambridgeshire Police spokesperson said: "The post-mortem examinations into the deaths of two men, whose bodies were found at Thorney Dyke, near Peterborough, have concluded that the men died from stab wounds."

Their deaths of the men, both from Peterborough, are being linked to the murder of Kevin Lee, who was found dead in a ditch just off the A16 at Newborough on Saturday (30 March).

A post-mortem examination into Mr Lee's death also concluded that he died of stab wounds.

A total of five people have been arrested in connection with the murder of Mr Lee.

A 36-year-old man has been charged with perverting the course of justice, and is being held in custody to appear at Peterborough Crown Court on Wednesday 10 April.

Two men aged 23 and 32, arrested last weekend, have been released on bail.

A 47-year-old man arrested in Hereford earlier this week remains in custody.

A 30-year-old woman also arrested in Hereford has been detained under the Mental Health Act.
