Detectives are appealing for information about the unexplained death of a man in North London four years ago.

If you have any information about Kester David's death, please call the incident room on 020 8785 8099 www.met.police.uk
Kester Michael David was born on 6 July 1957 in Grenada, and turned 53 the day before his death. He moved to the UK in 1975 aged 17. From 1997 Kester lived in Russell Avenue, Wood Green, N22. Kester was a part time bus driver with Arriva working from the Wood Green depot. He had a passion for D-Jing as DJ Bain in the Soca (Soul Calypso) music scene. Kester was very health conscious and active member of Virgin Gym in Wood Green. For a period in early 2010 he worked for an internet radio station in Stoke Newington called Lynx Radio using the name DJ Bain. Kester's 80-year-old mother describes him as loving and caring.
On 5 July 2010, two days before Kester's death, a relative called his mobile phone which was answered by an unknown man. Who was this man? Could the man have been a colleague from Arriva Buses? Police want to trace this individual.
Kester had a Blackberry Curve 8520 mobile phone but this has never been found. It was used on 14 and 15 July in the general area of Wood Green shopping centre (red line) and on 22 July around the area of Whittington Hospital. We need to find Kester's Blackberry Curve mobile phone and find out who was using it.
Two weeks after Kester's death, police from an Enfield Safer Neighbourhoods team received an email from someone calling themselves 'Sharon', who appeared to have known Kester well. Sharon claimed to know who was responsible for Kester's death. Police urgently need to hear from this person.
The night before Kester was found, just after 21:00hrs, he was spotted on CCTV entering the shop at Texaco Service Station, Lordship Lane, where he purchased petrol in a jerry can. Twenty minutes later, he returned in his white Ford Transit van and put fuel in it, but the van broke down. The RAC breakdown service attended at about 22:20hrs, his van was fixed by 23:00hrs. instagram.com sm_support's photo on Instagram

At 03:53hrs a man wearing the same clothing as the man at 03:23hrs carrying a jerry can is seen walking north along Green Lanes, toward Bloomfield Lane. Kester's family have viewed the CCTV and say that the man at 03:23 and 03:53hrs is not Kester. Who is this man? Do you recognise yourself? We need to find out who he is. instagram.com sm_support's photo on Instagram
At 04:20hrs a bright light was seen on Travis Perkin's CCTV coming from under the arches. A number of local residents heard screams at this time.

The area is difficult to access and can only be reached by climbing over a metal fence and walking down a steep concrete embankment. The railway arch is where Broomfield Lane passes over the First Capital Connect rail line. The arch is adjoined but separate and secure from a Travis Perkins Yard. instagram.com sm_support's photo on Instagram
