Tim Hipperson, 39, died in hospital on Thursday three days after the stabbing but police have now launched a murder probe. He was knifed in posh Richmond, southwest London, on Monday.
This is a tragic development in this case and my thoughts are with Tim’s family and friends at this incredibly sad time
Detective Chief Inspector Maria Green, of Met Police
Surrey Live reports Mr Hipperson was found on Kings Road where, according to RightMove, semi-detached properties sold for an average of £720,000 last year. In 2015, some properties there sold for more than £1million.
Metropolitan Police said officers conducted an area search, but no suspects were located on Monday.
Now, Acting Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) Maria Green, of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command (Homicide), is leading the murder investigation.
She said: “This is a tragic development in this case and my thoughts are with Tim’s family and friends at this incredibly sad time.
“I want to take this opportunity to appeal to the local community for help in finding the person or people responsible for Tim’s death.
“I would ask local residents to check their doorbell footage and dash cams to see if they captured any footage of this incident.”
Although Mr Hipperson was found injured on Kings Road, police understand he may have been stabbed in nearby Peldon Passage, a cul-de-sac near homes and businesses.
The man’s next of kin have been informed and they are being supported by specially trained officers.
Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has any information about what took place, is urged to call 101 with the reference CAD4524/17MAY.
Information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
