Update: Two London Police officers investigated for possible misconduct over investigation into Richard Okorogheye's disappearance



Two Metropolitan Police officers are being investigated by the police watchdog for possible misconduct in the case of Nigerian teenager, Richard Okorogheye.


Mr. Okorogheye, 19, went missing from his home in Ladbroke Grove, west London, on March 22, and was found dead two weeks later in a lake in Epping Forest, 20 miles away.



Now the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) confirmed it had served misconduct notices on two London officers.


In July, misconduct notices were previously served on two MPS staff members as part of the same investigation.


The misconduct probe follows concerns from the teenager's mother Evidence Joel over the response she received after her son was reported missing.







Ms. Joel, a nurse, previously said that she was 'disappointed with the initial response by police' when she reported her son was missing.


She claimed: 'I told a police officer that my son was missing, please help me find him, and she said ''if you can't find your son, how do you expect police officers to find your son for you?'''Latest Post
