A BODY found in a well in the garden of a house in Warlingham has been removed ahead of a post mortem. Police were called to a cottage in Audley Drive at around 1.50pm on Friday by workmen. Earlier today the men who found the body, a teenager and his friend from New Addington, told the Advertiser it had been wrapped in a blue tarpaulin sheet. Specialist officers, including police divers, managed to lift the body from the well earlier this afternoon (Saturday). A post mortem is scheduled to take place at East Surrey Hospital mortuary at 2pm on Sunday. Police say they do not have any further details about the identity of the body. Jack Duncan, 17, and Rory Mulholland, 21, who found the body, said they believe the victim to be an adult male. The investigation is being led by the Homicide and Major Crime Command, led by Detective Chief Inspector Cliff Lyons. "This is an unusual case and I would appeal for anybody who has concerns about a missing person, or who believes they may know something about this individual or incident, to call my officers," he said. "Although I cannot elaborate further at this time, I have reason to believe that this body was placed into the well and we are treating the incident as a murder." On Friday night seven men, aged between 21 and 27, were arrested on suspicion of murder. They remain in custody at this time. Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4961 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
