A man has been charged with murder after body parts were found floating in a lake.
Elvis Kwiatkowski, 35, of Clopton Close, Croydon, is one of three men charged with the murder of Neill Buchel, who went missing from his home in Dagenham in March.
The trio have also been charged with perverting the course of justice.
Mr Buchel, 39, is believed to have been involved in an incident on the day he went missing with a group of men in Heath Park, Dagenham.
After the incident a 41-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of public order offences and issued with a penalty notice for disorder.
Mr Buchel, a father of two, then went to Stansgate Road, but made no contact with anyone and was officially reported missing by his estranged partner on March 18.
A dismembered leg was then found floating in White Hart Lakes in Dagenham on April 1. Further body parts were later recovered by police.
The two other men arrested and charged with murder and perverting the course of justice are Scott Hunt, 41, of Braintree Road in Dagenham and Chas Quye, 35, of Stansgate Road in Dagenham.
The trio are due to appear at the Old Bailey tomorrow (Wednesday) for a bail hearing and at Barkingside Magistrates Court on May 20.
Colin Bushaway, 60, of Gregory Crescent, Eltham, has also been charged with perverting the course of justice in relation to the murder. He has been bailed to appear at Redbridge Magistrates’ Court on May 20.
