The Metropolitan Police Service has been co-ordinating the national response, across ten police forces, in relation to information passed to police in early 2015 regarding serious crimes, alleging the involvement of Levi Bellfield (who now calls himself Yusuf Rahim).
It has taken a considerable amount of time and police resources to conduct the investigation. All lines of enquiry have now been exhausted and the decision has been taken to close this investigation as there is no evidence to link the individual to any case for which he has not already been convicted.
We have remained in close liaison with a number of families throughout the course of our inquiries, and have made them aware of this outcome. This has understandably been a very difficult time for them and we would ask that the privacy of individuals' is respected.
Bellfield has been informed of the outcome.
