Mum makes appeal after son’s body found in Thames near Rotherhithe

The mother of a man found dead in the Thames near Rotherhithe has urged anyone with information to come forward, as police release CCTV images showing his last known actions.

The photos show Borex Tatsa on bus N149 and then walking through Southwark between 1.19am and 2.19am on February 8. Later that day his rucksack was found in a bin outside The Old Thameside Inn in London Bridge.

The eighteen-year-old was found dead in the river on February 28, with nothing known about his actions during the intervening three weeks.

Borex’s mother said in a statement: “Borex was a much loved member of our family. He was a quiet person with a lovely smile. If anyone knows anything at all about what happened to him please come forward and tell the police as we are desperate to know what happened to him.”

I would like to appeal to any witnesses or any person who has information in relation to this incident, to come forward and speak to a member of the investigation team.”

Anyone who may have seen Borex is asked to contact the investigation team at Hackney CID on 0207-275-3404 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.
