Police investigating the death of 15-year-old Rio Andrew in Croydon in June, 2014, have arrested a 41-year-old man.
Officers from the Metropolitan Police executed search warrants at two addresses in Birmingham and Wolverhampton on Thursday, 15 January.
A 41-year-old man [C1] was arrested at the address in Birmingham on suspicion of money laundering, fraud and corporate manslaughter. He has subsequently been bailed to return to a south London police station in early April, pending further enquiries.
The warrants and arrest are in connection with the investigation into the death of Rio Andrew, who died following an illegal rave at a disused sorting office in East Croydon on 14 June, 2014. Rio collapsed at the event and was taken to hospital, but died two days later on 16 June.
Detectives from Croydon CID continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding Rio’s death. An inquest is due to be opened by the Croydon Coroner, although a date for this is still to be confirmed.
