London woman’s murder: cis man arrested

November 13, 2009

Destiny_Lauren-image-via-BBC_websiteFurther to my recent post (link here) about the violent death of Destiny Lauren in London on 5 November, I note the following update on the BBC News website (link here):

Police investigating the murder of a 29-year-old woman in north-west London have made an arrest.

A man in his 20s is being held in connection with Destiny Lauren’s murder on 5 November.


Police previously arrested a 35-year-old man connection with the investigation, who has been bailed to return in December pending further inquiries.

Time alone will tell if both cis men are responsible for Destiny’s death. All I know is that the name of yet another of my sisters has been added to the roll call for next week’s Transgender Day of Remembrance.


Sunday, 15 November: Reports from the Press Association (link here) and BBC News (link here) confirm that Leon Fyle, a 21-year old unemployed man, has been charged with the murder of Destiny Lauren, and will appear at the City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court tomorrow (Monday, 16 November)


Monday, 16 November: From the Press Association (link here):

Unemployed Leon Fyle, 21, of Laleham Road, Catford, south-east London, was charged at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court with murdering Destiny Lauren.

A court official said he was remanded in custody to reappear at the Old Bailey on February 22 next year.

And from Pink News (link here):

A 35-year-old man who was arrested in connection with her murder has been bailed until next month.
