The proprietor of the London radio station Bizim FM, radio DJ Koray Alpergin, was discovered dead in a wooded area.

Following reports that a man and a woman were missing on Saturday, police reported that a body had been discovered close to Loughton, Essex.

On suspicion of murder, three males were detained in the Kent area and are still being held by police.

Hurriyet, an esteemed Turkish publication, called Mr. Alpergin, 43.

“My dear friends from London on my page; My friend and colleague dear Koray and his fiancée, who are widely known to the public in London, have sadly been missing since Thursday,” the victim’s friend Altan Akturk wrote on social media.

Numerous people have paid tribute to the well-known DJ.

Ismail Karakas, from Turkish Press, described Mr Alpergin as “London’s beloved Radio DJ” and said: “London Turkish Society mourns! We express our condolences to Tuncay Beykozlu, the bereaved father of Koray, and his loved ones.

“As Turkish Press Newspaper, we wish God to have mercy on the late DJ Koray who left us at a young age. Our condolences to his family and loved ones.”

T-Vine news wrote: “We are devastated by DJ Koray “Bizim FM” Alpergin’s untimely death. He was a brilliant, universally loved man who brought joy to thousands with his radio shows.

“Our deepest condolences to Koray’s family, friends and entire community.”

The community has been invited to come forward with any information by the Turkish Police Association.

It stated in a tweet that it was assisting the Central Specialist Crime unit of the Met Police with the inquiry.

When there were complaints that the two were missing on Friday, police were called to a house in Enfield, North London.

According to authorities, the woman has been located and is in good physical condition.

Police are currently looking into whether the two were forced into a car on Thursday night.

“This is a very complex and fast-moving investigation involving multiple units across the MPS, as well as invaluable support from our colleagues in Essex Police.

“While the investigation remains at an early stage, a key line of enquiry is that the man and woman were taken against their will in a vehicle on Thursday night.

“A police presence will remain in the Oakwood Hill Industrial Estate area for the coming days as we work to complete further enquiries. We offer our apologies to anyone inconvenienced by the disruption of road closures.

“I can assure residents in Enfield and Essex that we are doing absolutely everything we can to understand the chain of events here, and bring to justice those responsible.”

Anyone who was in the vicinity of Ebony Crescent on Thursday night and noticed anything odd is urged to notify the police right once.

The Met also requests that anyone with dashcam or doorbell footage call 101 and use the reference CAD 3901/14 Oct.
