    Terrible News - Cyclist found dead in Richmond Park

    From the Richmond and Twickenham Times here: http://www.richmondandtwickenhamtime...Richmond_Park/

    That is tragic. Anyone with any more info please post - I'll do the same.

    My condolences to the family when they are informed.

    I use to do laps around Richmond park. A cyclist was stabbed to death by a lunatic there a few years ago as well.

    Just realised I was actually in Richmond Park on that day but quite a bit earlier than 3pm.

    This whole episode has really troubled me since I first read it a few days ago and I really hope they find the guy's family soon.

    Again, no updates that I can see online but I will update this thread as soon as there are.

    UPDATE:

    The man has been named as Martyn Dobson.

    More details here: http://www.richmondandtwickenhamtime...nd_Park_named/

    If his family sees this, my deepest sympathy goes to you at this time.
