ANALYSIS of the body discovered in a Warlingham well has found injuries consistent with an assault, police have said. The man was found in a well in the garden of a house in a cottage in Audley Drive on Friday afternoon. A post mortem into his cause of death, carried out at East Surrey Hospital mortuary yesterday (Sunday) has proved inconclusive. Further tests will now be carried out. However, the examination did reveal injuries to the body consistent with an assault. A murder investigation is underway. Officers have also established the body is that of a white male, although he has yet to be identified. Police were called after gardeners discovered the body in a well outside the house. Specialist officers, including Metropolitan Police divers, attended the scene and recovered the body. The investigation is being led by the Homicide and Major Crime Command, led by Detective Chief Inspector Cliff Lyons. He said: "The post mortem examination has revealed this person, who we now know is a white male, suffered injuries before being placed into the well. We are treating the incident as a murder." Officers arrested seven men, aged between 21 and 27, on suspicion of murder - they were interviewed and subsequently released on bail until a date in late December. 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.
