New charge in connection with death of DJ Koray Alpergin

DJ Koray Alpergin and his girlfriend Gozde Dalbudak were snatched as they returned home from an Italian restaurant in Mayfair in October 2022. 

They were taken to an empty wine bar near Tottenham Hotspur Stadium where 43-year-old Mr Alpergin was said to have been tortured and killed. 

His body was then dumped in woodland near the Oakwood Hill Industrial Estate in Loughton and 34-year-old Ms Dalbudak spent two days locked in a toilet before being freed. 

Now Dylan Weatherley, 20, of Beaufoy Road, Tottenham, has been charged with the kidnap and false imprisonment of Mr Alpergin and Ms Dalbudak, as well as conspiring to murder Mr Alpergin. 

He will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (March 14).
