DETECTIVES investigating a fatal stabbing in Ipswich this afternoon charged a man with murder.

Paul Anthony Dwyer, 32, of no fixed address was formally charged at the town's police station by officers and is due to appear before magistrates in the town tomorrow.

He is to come before South East Suffolk Magistrates who sit in the courthouse in Elm Street.

The body of London teenager Peter Brown was found in a flat at Parkwood in Henley Road on Friday, October 26, after an anonymous call to police.

Two men were arrested on suspicion of murdering the 19-year-old who lived in a quiet leafy suburb of Hackney with his father, a church deacon, and his 20-year-old brother.

A 28-year-old Ipswich man was released on police bail in connection with the killing while detectives continued to quiz the second man, who was initially believed to be in his early 20s.

Custody time limits expired today and police had to decide whether to charge, bail or release Dwyer him without charge.

Meanwhile, scenes of crime officers were still searching a ground floor flat at the Parkwood block yesterday, taking away potential evidence in sealed paper and plastic bags.

Speaking of the shock at his son's death, Mr Brown's father Noel Brown – a deacon with the Clapton Seventh Day Adventist church in Homerton – said he had no idea why his son had been in Ipswich.

Mr Brown, 66, said the family became worried about Peter on Thursday when he failed to come home. Peter was unemployed at the time of his death but had trained at college as an electrician, he said.

His body was found by police officers shortly after 9am the following day at Parkwood, a 39-flat, three-storey building overlooking Christchurch Park.

A murder inquiry was launched headed by Detective Superintendent Adrian Braddy.
