A SOUTH Hampstead man was stabbed to death with his body found in Hertfordshire.

The Met Police said the body of Shkelqim Paja, 31, a Kosovan national of Rowley Way, was found in undergrowth in Hogg Lane in Elstree on December 20.

A post-mortem gave his cause of death as stab wounds to the chest.

Detectives said his death is linked to another fatal stabbing where Arber Fesko, 30, was found in the boot of a car in Scratchwood Park in Barnet a day earlier. Police have launched a double murder investigation.

Two men have been arrested and charged with two counts of murder.
