New London arrest over French student murders


A fourth suspect has been arrested in London in connection with the violent murders of two French students. A 23-year old man, named as Daniel Sonnex, was arrested less than an hour after police appealed for information, describing him as “dangerous.”

Earlier, 33-year old Nigel Farmer appeared in court, charged with murder, arson and perverting the course of justice. Gabriel Ferez and Laurent Bonomo had suffered multiple stabbings. Their bodies were found in Bonomo’s burning apartment.
Police have described the murders as the most frenzied, brutal and horrific they have ever seen.

Two other suspects, a 35-year old man and a 25-year old woman, are also being questioned about the murders on June 29th, but have not been charged. A 21-year old man was arrested at the weekend, but was later released.
