Body found by jogger.
POLICE were called to Regent's Canal, at 5:43pm on Friday evening, a quarter of a mile from Hampstead Road Lock, where a woman had reported finding a male body. The woman, who cannot be named, claimed she found the yet-to-be-identified body while out jogging on the opposite bank. The victim had been shot, at point blank range in the forehead. The woman quoted "I just saw a lot of blood, and I knew the man was dead as soon as I saw him." There were no known witnesses at the scene. Detective Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard, advised people to be cautious while the investigations took place, and urged anyone who had been in the area at that time to come forward.
