Police were called at 2:47 am on July 30, 2020, to reports of a stabbing at Clements Court on Green Lane.
Officers and the London Ambulance Service rushed to where the party was taking place and found a man suffering from stab wounds.
Despite the efforts of medics at the scene, he was pronounced dead at 3:45 am.
Officers believe him to be 32-year-old father-of-two Nathan Mitra, however, formal identification is yet to take place. His next of kin have been informed.
A post-mortem examination is set to take place.
A 22-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder. She was taken to a Central London police station.
Detective Chief Inspector Rob Pack, who is leading the investigation, said:
“At this early stage, we are retaining an open mind concerning motive, and are keen to hear from anyone who has information or footage of the events leading up to the attack that ended Nathan’s life.
“There was a party going on at the venue, there were lots of people there and I urge those people to come forward and pass on what they saw – no matter how insignificant it may seem.
“In addition, anyone who was in the area during the early hours of Thursday morning and noticed anything unusual or suspicions should contact my team without delay.”
Local policing commander Chief Superintendent Peter Gardner said:
“This is a senseless act of violence and we have needlessly lost another life at the point of blade.
“My thoughts and condolences are with Nathan’s family at this desperately sad time.”
“I’d like to thank the officers and members of the London Ambulance Service that were first on the scene and worked tirelessly to try and save his life.
“We understand the impact of violent crime on our communities and residents can expect to see an increased police presence in the area as part of reassurance patrols.
“There will be some disruption to the local area whilst crime scenes are in place as part of our investigation.
“Please do speak with officers about any concerns you may have, or information that you would like to provide.”
