Police investigating the “shocking and horrific” murder of Drummer Lee Rigby issued a new appeal for information today as they confirmed the soldier died from multiple stab wounds.
An inquest into Drummer Rigby’s death will be opened at Southwark Crown Court on Friday, Scotland Yard said, after the results of the post-mortem examination were revealed.
Fresh details were released after it emerged that three firearms officers involved in the shooting of the men suspected of the murder could be back on duty within weeks.
Michael Adebowale and Michael Adebolajo were both shot in the wake of the brutal murder near Woolwich barracks. Adebowale was discharged from hospital and taken into police custody yesterday, while Adebolajo remains in hospital.
